Ice cubes wrapped in cheesecloth.  Dip quickly into stock to remove most of the fat layer.

Sure, the fat magnet scoops put grease like a magnet...but magnets don't really work on grease, do they?

I didn't know it was physically possible to launch a cooked egg yolk out of an egg without the rest of the egg attached to it.

"The cardboard was a little scrunched up, but I attribute that to it being old, and I am more thankful for the fact that the shipping packaging did not come covered in hair, like the Eggstractor did"

Oddly enough, a wad of hair would probably do a pretty good job sucking the fat out of soup.

My barber donates the hair they collect for exactly this.  She explained the whole process to me once, and it was oddly fascinating to know that my clean, dry hair was going to end its days in toxic goo.  Saving the sea ain't all Aquaman, I guess.

I rarely make a small batch of soup with the intent of eating it that same day. Soup is one of those things that benefits greatly from economies of scale. I save up a stock pot's worth of poultry carcasses, hambones, or beef bones in the freezer, cover them in water and simmer them down in the oven with a couple TBLs of vinegar for at least 6 hours. Strain the hot pot of stock into a another pot sitting in the sink full of icy cold water until cool enough to refrigerate overnight. Scrape off all of the fat and mix it with some kitchen scraps, freeze and give to the birds in winter.

The second day, either make soup using the stock, or scoop the stock into ziploc freezer bags for later. Stock made in this method is so gelatinous when cold, it is easy to scoop into bags, and is concentrated enough to tolerate watering down.

I have been making and eating a lot of soup made by this method during this last plague year, and anecdotally, I think the extra gelatin and marrow bone jelly is doing good things for the health of my hair and nails. I used to make home-made dog food by cooking stock made this way with rice and most kitchen scraps except onion and garlic peels, or whatever else dogs can't digest. They loved it and it kept them regular, which is a good thing in a big old dog. Pro tip: butchers sell bones to human beings for full price, but if the butcher knows you have dogs and you are a regular customer, you can usually get a discount, especially if the dog is cute.

That is an authentic Cherokee hair tampon.  Those are hard to find in this day and age.
