        yup, I remember getting an order of fries the day after the local McD's switched the oil and thinking that they tasted like sh!&
        Don't be so concerned about yesterday, or worried about tomorrow, that you forget to enjoy today.

          I second or third the french fries. I've done them in tallow and in duck fat - both are awesome. I recently tried tallow to fry eggs and it was wonderful - even better than lard.

          I don't have a deep fryer, so I parboil the fat fries (fat as in wide) first, let them drip dry in a colander, then fry them in animal fat at a fairly high temp to get them crispy.

          You could do homefries this way, also - just cut the potatoes in chunks instead of strips. Throw some scrambled eggs on top and it's delicious primal poor people food!

          Who says back fat is a bad thing? Maybe on a hairy guy at the beach, but not on a crab.
