Q: Just yesterday I was frying some latkes when I hit upon a problem that I encounter frequently. What is a good way to deal with food that's just been fried in oil? My current method of putting it on a paper towel to sop up the oil seems less than eco-conscious.

Editor: That's a great question, Keegan. Readers, if you avoid paper towels, how do you drain or blot oil from fried foods? Any eco-friendly tips?
