Grandma's Sauce Hack for Getting Rid of Grease Is Just Brilliant

You can turn to the internet when it comes to learning the hacks, tips, and tricks of cooking. The internet is an endless source of information. Finding the answer to questions has never been easier. However, there is another source you can use if you cannot get the answer you seek online. Mothers, grandmothers, and aunts are priceless outlets for all things cooking. Whoever is the better cook in the family can be your go-to guru. Allow the knowledge they’ve gained to ease your cooking woes. If you don’t feel comfortable turning to them, might we suggest listening to someone else’s grandmother?

In a TikTok video, content creator @brunchwithbabs shares her hack to eliminate the excess grease in gravy or sauce. Our mouths dropped to the floor when we saw what she did. Why didn't anyone tell us this sooner?

Who knew all we needed to do was place a ladle with ice inside to soak up excess grease? We surely had no idea until today. But boy, are we thankful we know about it now. Let’s see how the TikTok community reacted to it. User @Kerri Navarro exclaimed, “My gallbladder says, ‘thanks, Babs!’” @crinklecut wrote, “This is amazing!” @Fluff wrote, “Shocking! Babs, you're amazing!” @OrajelToothpaste said, “I still can't believe my Pre-K teacher is famous now. Love you, Mrs. C!” @The Second City joked, “Not me licking the bottom grease instead of wiping.” @Diablö Jödi exclaimed, “Nooooo! Not the FLAVOR!” 

Hey, we understand if some of you want to leave the grease for flavoring purposes. But this hack is perfect for those who would prefer it gone. If you enjoyed this video, and we’re positive you did, please visit @brunchwithbabs’ TikTok channel. It’s got the answers to your food woes.
