Do you reuse bacon grease or used oil?
Why or why not?
I remember growing up and going to my Grandmothers house and seeing a jar sitting on the counter of bacon drippings. She used it all the time. I don't use used oil or bacon fat. The only time I use bacon drippings is when I just cooked the bacon, I never keep it after that
Yes I do reuse Bacon Grease, I use it when I'm making German Potato Salad. And in the morning when I cook bacon, I save the bacon grease to cook my scramble eggs, just a liitle grease to coat the pan. When I"m making cornbread put about 3 TBLS in the batter of mix, it delicious. Its give the eggs and the cornbread a wonderful taste.
I don't eat pork now, but I do know of people who save the bacon grease. Many people like the flavor it adds to other foods. It is similar to how some folks add ham into baked beans; it's all for the taste. It really depends upon personal preference. Also, many people use oil in deep fryers or a "fry daddy" multiple times before changing it out.
No, although I know it is a common practice. I have no good reason not too, I just find it gross to reuse it.
Yes. Bacon fat makes the food I fry tastier (e.g. potato wedges).
I generally don't re-use bacon grease because most of it is artificially smoked today and contains sugars which burn. Cook some bacon and then fry an egg in the grease. If it sticks or gets covered with black specks it is artifcially smoked and should not be re-used.
Cooking oil is safe to re-use if it hasn't been burnt. Run it through a coffee filter to remove any particles.
I never reuse oil, but I sure do use bacon grease. That's a wonderful way to cook many things, from eggs to kale. I store mine in the fridge.

When making fried chicken you need to deep fry the chicken.What do you do with the used oil throw it out or put it in a container and place it in a fridge for later use?

What do you do with used cooking oil?When we deep fry foods we always have the grease left over and then what do you do? Just wondering what some of y'all do with yours. Incidentally, I don't fry foods much anymore but once in a while we love our fried chicken, okra and potatoes.

How many times can you reuse cooking oil?I was looking a show on different restaurants, and they stated that they reused their cooking oil over 100 times. I really would hate to think what their food tasted like!!! Cooking oil has a tendency to absorb flavors of many foods.
