Of all the Thanksgiving dishes, traditional gravy often contains the greatest fat content. This year, give your gravy a healthy makeover by removing fat, so no one has to pass on this flavor-filled favorite.
- Remove fat from meat and poultry juices with a spoon or a fat-separating pitcher.
- Fat may also be removed by placing pan drippings in the refrigerator, which will cause the fat to slightly harden and it may then be easily removed with a spoon.
Every tablespoon of fat you remove from gravy or pan juice subtracts about 120 calories and 13 grams of fat.
