How do you separate fat with a baster?
Separating fat with a baster is quite easy. Pour your broth into a glass measuring cup or bowl, the smaller the better. Squeeze the bulb end and place the pointed end at the surface of the broth where the fat is. Release the bulb slowly and it will suck up the fat. Squeeze the bulb again with the pointed end over another bowl to release the fat. A few squeezes and the fat will all be gone. If your soup has a lot of fat, use the baster to suck up the broth itself from under the fat and release it into a separate bowl. You should also check out our articles on fat separators and using a baster for basting meat.
