Handy Dandy Little Tip!-Removing Fat off a roast

Kitchen tip: Before putting your crockpot leftovers into the refrigerator, cut a piece of wax paper that is large enough to cover the entire surface of the food in the storage container you’re using. Lay the wax paper over the top of the food, face down, and then put the lid on as you normally would. As the food cools in the refrigerator, the fat will begin to solidify. With the wax paper in place, the top side of the hardened fat will adhere to the wax paper.
After the food has completely cooled, you can remove the lid, peel off the wax paper, and stuck to the paper will be the layer of fat you’re wishing to discard. Magic!
Then you can pat yourself on the back, knowing that this little tip not only save you time in the kitchen, but it also helped you give a healthier batch of leftovers to your family.
