Mason Jars & Bacon Grease!


Mason Jar



Saving bacon grease & using it to cook with…
I cook a lot of bacon every week and the grease just goes in the trash.  Also, I bought some Mason jars with the hope of being able to use them as more than just kind of trendy old fashioned cups…

Turns out my Mason jars were a cool investment and the bacon grease can be saved for enhancing the flavor of other things!
For example; the other day I tried something new when making salsa, I used bacon grease in part of my Salsa recipe, and it ended up turning out AMAZING!  I fully intend to continue this practice whenever I make my salsa.  But, I need bacon every time now…

Then this morning when cooking breakfast I was talking to my roommate Chris and he said something to me that made me realize I could use the bacon grease and cook other stuff with it.  Not sure why I didn’t think of that before, maybe I am a little  bit slow…  Either way I am really excited about this and can’t wait to figure out other ways to enhance the flavor of things with the awesomeness that is bacon!

I am not what you would call a “Tree Huger” by any means, but by doing this it also makes me feel like I am creating less waste and even saving money since I am using all of my foods contents instead of just parts of it.

It’s a kind of cool feeling =).
