Got fat?

Bada Bing | Feb 13, 2014 01:06 PM

Maybe more a "Home Cooking" question, but maybe not. I routinely save duck fat for rendering when I get the chance. I've heard some people do that with chicken fat, and, of course, bacon fat.

Now I'm looking at quite a bit of beef fat that congealed on top of a beef stock (from meaty bones and shanks) after cooling, and I wonder why I always throw that out, and also pork fat apart from bacon?

Uses for various fats, or cautions?
