"a little bit of bacon grease I had saved"

Many families save bacon grease for later use. It can be used on pie crusts, biscuits, vegetables, or fried potatoes to add taste. It also adds taste to meats like chicken, deer, and rabbit.

Bacon grease can be saved in a glass jar with a lid and placed in the refrigerator for later use. Some people keep the grease in a leftover coffee can.
