I saved the rendered fat from my thanksgiving turkey. I have about a cup of it. How long will it keep? Any suggestions for what to do with it?
I used some of the fat to saute the veggies for my Turkey Soup.
The rest, I froze. Hope this helps.
Properly rendered... not sure. I poured all the pan drippings into a large measuring cup, and let it separate for a while (10 mins). Then I poured off the fat into a container and refrigerated it. Is that proper enough?
Thanks, ChefOno. I appreciate your thoughtful, informative answers! I'll do the boil like you recommend, and then store the fat in the freezer.
