2. Degreasing Sauces - This is a personal favorite technique and makes separating the sauce from the grease a quick and easy task.
3. Pancake Shapes - Whether you have kids or not, we think making silly pancake shapes with a turkey baster is a super-fun way to start the day. A turkey baster is also useful for making uniformly shaped pancake rounds or dispersing waffle batter over the hot waffle iron.
We also love the idea of using a turkey baster to infuse fruit with vodka, as one commenter suggests in this thread on vodka-infused watermelons. We imagine this would cause far fewer spills than the funnel method.
Any other tips for using a turkey baster in the kitchen?
