Bacon grease - are you a strainer or a bacon bits keeper?

fldhkybnva | Feb 5, 2013 07:05 PM

My grandmother never strained bacon grease and so I have never done it but with my new recent fascination with the stuff, and thus trying to find new ways to use it I'm reading that a lot of people strain it. Are you a strainer or a bacon bits keeper? Do you find that the bacon bits cause any issues with it perhaps getting rancid more quickly? I think I'll stay in the non-strainer camp, but just wanted to find out what others like to do.
