Skimming the fat……………

Spoon out excess fat from stocks, stews, and sauces by skimming a few ice cubes (wrapped in a paper towel or cheese cloth) along the surface of the liquid. The ice helps the fat solidify, making it easier to remove with a spoon (or even a piece of toast).

Hamilton Ice Fest: The winter season is approaching quickly and that can only mean one thing…the return of IceFest in Hamilton, Ohio! IceFest, whisks visitors away to a winter wonderland filled with ice sculptures, ice carving competitions, yummy hot chocolate and family-fun activities. The Hamilton-based organization, City of Sculpture, leads the way in the planning of the event. An estimated 200 blocks and 40 tons of ice are needed for the event; then locally and nationally-based carvers will chisel and create to bring the works of art to life. IceFest has featured a Technicolor Ice Walk, Human Dog Sled Races and of course, competition carving.

Here’s a helpful hint for grill outs, picnics, or trips……
Fill plastic milk jugs with water and freeze them. The ice lasts almost a week in a cooler.

Are you an iced coffee drinker, if so this tips for you! To make sure melting ice doesn’t dillute your drink, make ice cubes using the small amount of coffee left at the bottom of your coffee pot each morning. Use them in your iced coffee, and it will never taste watered down. This is also a great tip for iced tea.

Here’s one I had never heard of, thanks to Tina for passing this one along!

When making a soup, sauce, or casserole that ends up too fatty or greasy, drop in an ice-cube. The ice will attract the fat, which you can then scoop out.
