    Bacon grease

    Shop Now
    I only make bacon on the weekends... not because of any restrictions, just a time issue. Anyway, I made 4 slices with breakfast this morning and decided to put the grease in an empty jar for later use. I have never done this before and am wondering:

    How long will this stay good?
    Do I keep it in the refrigerator or room temp?

    It just seems weird to me because bacon itself would go bad pretty quickly...

    I leave mine in a glass jar on the counter and use it here and there...it doesn't seem to go bad. I add to it and take from it daily and clean it out every other week-ish.

    I keep mine in the fridge-stays soft enough to scoop out. And I just keep adding to it whenever I make bacon-it doesn't seem to go bad.

    I'd love to have a bacon grease can like my mom had when I was a kid. Came with a lid and an insert with small holes that fit on top to strain out the solids - and she just left it on the stove all the time. And that was in Texas with no air conditioning.

    Got a jar by the stove with a piece of cheese cloth over the opening with a rubber band around the bottom end of the jar threads. Just keep the lid screwed on and there you go. I don't think bacon grease goes bad either.

    Back when I wasn't really using the grease because fat was scary, I think I kept some in the fridge for about a year and it never showed any signs of going bad. It wasn't strained or anything, either.
