Getting rid of the fat
The problem with cooking stews etc. is that you get a layer of fat at the top which you can scoop off. The normal procedure is to pour this down the sink but because the fats harden at room temperature, this clogs up the drains.
We put it into a cup or glass and then put it in the fridge. When it's hard, we scoop it into a plastic bag and put it with the rest of the weekly refuse.
