I want to invest in a good bacon fat jar. But, before I do, I want to be sure that if I use it on a regular basis to add fat to my cooking, I won't end up with adverse health effects. Also, how long does bacon fat last before I should discard it... (more)

There is a fair amount of PUFA in pork lard. Have you ever tried grass fed beef tallow?

If I'm ever quoted in some famous phrase book, I hope they pick up on my favorite saying: with ability comes responsibility. (yeah I came up with it, though I doubt I'm the first) Since you know the truth, you should tell people. You have the... (more)

Could you consume too much bacon fat? Every morning, I'll make anywhere from 3-4 slices of bacon, and maybe a couple of eggs cooked in the bacon fat. After I'm done cooking those, I'll use the remaining bacon fat to cook some veggies in. Is that... (more)

Is there ever to much bacon! I know it is a sin, not used all that bacon fat. I will not tell, if you do not! What kind bacon, do you buy?

Obviously I love bacon, but having some logistical problems with cooking it. I cook a batch of about 6-8 strips in the oven once a week. This produces more leftover fat than I can possibly use in cooking vegs, etc. So I have pots of the... (more)

Hi, Paleos. When I cook a pork chop, lamb's leg, or chicken etc, am I meant to eat the skin, the rind, the fatty bits? This is where I am getting mighty confused about Paleo and weight loss, good fat and bad fat. Thanks a bundle E (more)

Here is where your life just got easier: Eat to your heart's content when it comes to animal fat! (Local & mostly/all grass-fed). Speaking of hearts, I just learned from buying a beef heart recently, and un-rendered tallow, that you need to... (more)

I just made bacon today. How long can I keep it in the fridge for use?

I just keep mine in a jar on the counter. If you use it frequently, it won't go bad fast enough. If you're only going to use it occasionally, then place it in the fridge and it should stay good for a very long time.

Kerrygold butter and butter from grass-fed animals contain: vitamin A vitamin K2 vitamin E CLA other important fat-soluble nutrients ... which bacon does NOT contain. I would go for the butter anytime. (more)

If you're going into ketosis, you definitely shouldn't be looking at calories. I think a tool like livestrong is ideal for tracking carbs and fat intake, but those calorie limits are really not designed for ketosis or Paleo lifestyle, and more... (more)

You alway find out something new when you do actual research. I always thought bacon grease, butter, and coconut oil were ideal for frying. The reason? Well, don't they all have rather high smoke points? And isn't that because they are... (more)

Haven't you essentially answered your own question by saying that coconut oil is lowest in MUFA and PUFA? Of course probably not flash frying too much is part of the solution!

I don't have a great answer for you, but this video is something you might want to take note of. It looks like bacon oil can potentially be problematic for turkey frying. http://www.wonderhowto.com/how-to-deep-fry-turkey-bacon-grease-304545/ (more)
