Bacon Fat fridg life and can I freeze some of the FAT ???

sylvan | Nov 16, 2012 05:12 AM

I've just begun saving bacon fat and storing it in the refrigerator.
I always used to throw it out but when I read it wasn't as bad as some ""phoney, healthy butters"
on the market, I now save it.

How long is the refrigerated fat good?

Since I don't make bacon that often, can I freeze bacon FAT so it won't go rancid in the refrigerator?

(((( As an aside, a tip I learned from Chowhound so I'm sure most of you already know this:
Baking it all at one time is very convenient when you want some for a recipe in the future.
It's also much, much easier and cleaner than cooking it fresh in a skillet on the stovetop
each time you want some.
Cut your bacon en masse in half and place the slices on foil-lined cookie cooking tray.
Set oven at 400 and set the timer at 17 minutes and then check frequentlly thereafter
til it's the doneness you want.
Freeze it. ))))
