Notes from Veronica; Fat settles on top, to keep this from
happening stir 1/2 teaspoon corn starch into 1/2 cup of cold
water and stir into soup. This will emulsify the fats and oils in
any of these soups and other liquids. Soups are a good place to
use some of that fat you used for deep-fat frying it adds a nice
flavor.
