Mother of 2, and wife to a kick ass husband...trying to contain chaos and havoc on a daily basis
I use a coffee filter rubber banded to a mason jar... I'm ghetto like that.
I've used this method before, but it seems that eventually the fat stops making it through the filter and just sits there, mocking me. I've tried microwaving to raise the temp and this helps, but not much. Any tips?
Thanks Georgette. I've used cheesesloth when I got tired of waiting for the coffee filter and it does work really well. However, it's hard to find around here and way overpriced when it can be found, so I hesitate to use it. Maybe I should just find it cheap on the web and start using it. Or just get an awesome fine mesh metal filter like the OP showed.
I just use a paper towel stuffed in the neck of a mason jar. Pour in warm/hot fat in the cup formed by the paper towel, and it'll strain through just fine. Throw away or burn the paper towel each time.
