What do you do with fat/lard/drippings?!

CarmenR | Jul 8, 2010 11:16 PM

aside from frying an egg or making gravy?! Everyone treats these things as gold, but i don't *really* know what to do with them on a daily basis so I toss them. sure, I'll use bacon fat in the recipe I'm making the bacon for and whatnot, but I cant think of a reason to save, say, seasoned chicken fat...

so what do I DO with these things? Maybe there are super elaborate, highly difficult dishes that I dont know about (and, truthfully, will probably never make...)
