Make your tongue slap your brains out. \:\)

Anyone else save it to cook with? What's the strangest thing you have seasoned with it?

I keep a quart jar in the fridge if it gets below half full I start getting nervous.

We save all our bacon grease in a grease crock http://amzn.to/12uPKod but also use a mason jar from time to time. We cook everything in bacon grease. I just cooked a cast iron feta,red tater, bacon and spinach frittata in about an inch of grease and it tasted darn good

I have always had success using bacon grease as an attractive for when I wanted to take snap shots of big foot, but lately have had trouble with the "Black Panthers" eating my bait.
Seriously, I have always save bacon grease, great for just about everything.

I get better accuracy from my pellet gun when I lube the pellets up a little bit with bacon grease.

Really prefers applewood smoked bacon.

A friend of mine uses it for fox trapping. I thought that was strange.

I save all of my bacon renderings. Corn bread in cast iron just isn't the same without that crispy, bacony crust.

I know some people filter their bacon grease to help separate it. If you don't have a filter setup, you can use cheese cloth to strain it. The other thing you can do is pour some salt in the bottom of the container you intend to store your bacon grease in. The salt will cause the separation of the rendered fat.

I put mine in mason jars with a layer of salt on the bottom of the jar. -keep them in the fridge for up to a year. -check for a rancid smell at every use. It usually will not go bad.
