What easier way to make home made chicken broth than to take the carcass of one of those store bought chickens, put it in a pot with a mirepoix (chopped onions, carrots and celery) and let it simmer for about 45 minutes? The bird is already seasoned, so you don't have to fuss with that. You've got home made chicken broth to use or freeze til you've got the itch to make a Nigella recipe using chicken broth!

If you have cooked something like a lamb casserole, and you want to serve it straight away. To remove the layer of fat that floats at the top just chuck in a few ice cubes. The fat goes cold and immediately sticks to the ice cubs. Scoop out with a slottted spoon and throw away, then just bring your casserole/gravy or whatever back up to heat. Of course you could always leave it overnight in the fridge and take off the fat that way.
