Don't Toss Your Bacon Grease, Make Flavor Pods!
Bacon is a fatty cut of meat taken from the pork belly and when you cook it properly - slowly, at a low temperature - a lot of that fat is going to render off and become liquid.
One great benefit of the low and slow method of cooking bacon is the leftover grease! Since there is no burning or scorching of the bacon, the rendered fat is clear and when it cools, it turns a creamy white color.
Bacon fat is loaded with smoky flavor, meaning you can save it and use it for cooking - it will enhance everything from baked goods to corn on the cob.
