Hello! I'm planning on doing my first Whole 30 towards the end of January. In the mean time I'm doing my research, prep, and finishing off my current food that will not be part of that diet at the end of the month.
I'm planning on roasting a chicken and then making a broth with the carcass. When I was reading the instructions in the book it said once the broth has cooled in the fridge that I should scrape the fat off the top and discard. Is that fat that comes off the broth something I could potentially keep to use as one of my cooking fats? I'm trying to budget conscious as well - and would love if this was an acceptable way of getting some fat instead of throwing it out.
If I can keep it, what are the best storage methods? How long will it keep? Can this be used with the beef broth or other broths I might try to make in the future?
