How do you keep your schmaltz?

SeaSide Tomato | Mar 1, 2012 11:57 AM

When I roast my chicken(s) I drain any leftover fat into a glass container, cover it, keep it refrigerated, and use it as needed.

I went to get a spooful of some (monthish) old chicken fat last night. I had mold growing on it (WAAH).

You hear about folks keeping bacon fat (and I thought schmalz) for ages in the fridge.
