You sage cooks out there already know this. But, we all had to start from scratch when learning to cook, so this tip is for the "newbies"!
When cooking stews, soups and such, getting the fat out is just as easy as 1 and 2 and 3
When your food has cooled, simply lift off the top and all that congealed fat will come up with the plastic. It's basic chemistry, but it works every single time. Throw the cellophane away and enjoy the food with virtually no fat left in it!

I do not know if I'd call myself a newbie (I'm 46). I never knew that. Thank you for the tip!
That is a fantastic tip. I can't wait to try it! Thank you.
Newbies or sage cooks alike can always learn something new! Hey, I was 25 before I realized that radishes didn't grow in bunches! Yep, I never bothered to "unbunch" them, so I didn't know they had rubber bands! I love to cook but I can't grow anything but mold!
You are both very welcome!
