HFG tip

Fat-free cooking juice

You can freeze fat-free cooking juice and use it as stock or in gravy.

Step 1 Refrigerate cooking juice from chicken in a jug or bowl. The fat will sit on the juice’s surface.

Step 2 Separate fat from the liquid using a fat separator. This has a spout at the base of the vessel (available through kitchen shops). Or pour slightly cooled juices into a strong plastic bag, snip a tiny piece off the corner and allow stock to pour out. Stop pouring before fat comes out.
