Tips for cooling broth please

mike2401 | Jan 30, 2013 06:12 PM

I made a 14-cup broth in the pressure cooker. I strained it into this smaller container.

From what I understand, you really don't want to put a hot pot in the refrigerator because it will heat up the fridge, and the glass shelf might shatter.

So, I'm trying to cool it off.

1) I presume there's a better technique than what I'm doing.

2) To help get the fat to the top so I can scrape it off, should I put it in the freezer for an hour (then remove fat, and move pot to fridge), or just the refrigerator over night and deal with it in the morning?

Any thoughts would be very much appreciated!
