Freeze the entire pot of stock, then set the block of ice out to "thaw". The fat will soften first, and you can scrape the whole thing without having to skim and skim and skim and skim and skim.

Good idea. Or you could just freeze the individual jars and do the same. The cheese cloth after the fat sets and the stock is cool would work, too. Basically, just seperate the fat an you are good to go.

You don't have to freeze it to get the fat off. Just cool it down by sitting the jars in the fridge for a few hours and the fat will lift right off with a spoon...

Yeah, sorry that wasn't clear. That's exactly what I did.

Pardon my ignorance, but I assume that the stock can later be frozen with no adverse effects on taste, right?

I think my parents used to recycle old milk jugs to use for keeping stock, but it was in my early childhood and the details have faded.

Yes. I freeze them in mason jars that are 80% full to leave from for expansion. Milk jugs would be fine or gatorade bottle etc.

Its not that bad, really, but that is what everyone complains about being gamey.
