Do you throw it out or keep it for other uses. My grandmother had a grease container that had a strainer on it to separate the crumbs or whatever from the grease. It was on top of her cook stove and she used the grease to season or cook other foods in. I keep bacon grease in a container in my refrigerator at all times and use it occasionally to do the same thing. What do you do with yours.

I'd use it if I had it but I use pre cooked bacon.

We keep and use every drop of bacon grease. I can’t cook without it.

Keep mine in fridge.
Fry eggs in it.
Season veggies and beans.
Use in bottom of cast iron skillet for cornbread.
It’s good stuff.

How long will Bacon grease stay good if you put it in a container/tupperware and leave it out or putting it in the fridge?

Not sure about time but it will go rancid. Wonder if you can buy it at the store?

Yes. Bacon grease is sold in five gallon buckets at restaurant supply houses.

And keep it in the fridge.

There is a difference in bacon grease and rendered lard. We used lard when I was growing up . We didn't have refrigeration back in the day. It got rancid.

Could you store different animal fats in the same jar or is that just disgusting?

We called beef fat tallow. We never cooked with tallow. Some people used it on boots.

I only cook with vegetable oil or butter and very little of that. I eat all I use. Only bacon grease I ever eat is with the bacon I put on my baked beans.

My grandmother kept hers in an old Crisco can on the stove. My wife keeps hers in the oven.

We have a glass jar with a silicone gasket that uses a snap to hold the lid shut. It stays on the cook top.

Ours is in a spaghetti sauce jar in the fridge. I mainly use it when I'm starting a new batch of bacon.
