Make your homemade soups as low-fat and low-calorie as possible by skimming off extra fat with these techniques.
3. A fat-separating pitcher also is useful. It has a spout near the bottom. Broth is poured into the pitcher and allowed to stand for a few minutes. Because fat rises to the top, the broth can be poured off and the fat will remain in the pitcher.
4. Another tool to try is a fat-skimming ladle. Slots near the upper edge catch the fat, which stays in the ladle.
