If the shortening can be saved for reuse, how long would it keep?
Pan frying or deep frying? if you have deep fried the chicken, strain the fat through a paper-towel lined mesh strainer to remove all the little particles, etc. I would then refrigerate it. It can be used again.
I pan fry chicken about 2-3 times a year. I know reusing is a better option, but I haven't done this before. So, strain and refrigerate? And will it be fine if I don't use for 6 months?
I don't think anything keeps in the fridge for six months, not even the baking soda!! No, I would reuse it within a month.
I totally agree with wssmom. Here is a site I always checked on because my Dad always argued he could save his cooking oil and I was worried about health issues. Dad surely could save his cooking oil when he lived on his farm, but not so much now. http://extension.psu.edu...
Thanks for the answers. I guess I will not be saving it because it's too long between frying times.
Thanks also for the county extension website which I will check out.
