A fat separator is the secret to perfect gravy. And it’s one of those tools that you might not have known you needed, but will wonder how you lived without.
If you are new to the culinary scene–that is, you’ve been eating at Mom’s all your life–you may have never even heard of this little device. No worries, you can make your own quickly and easily. Use a glass measuring cup to separate the fatty part of the turkey drippings. Just fill the cup with drippings and place it into the freezer. The fat will rise to the top and can be quickly skimmed away.
