How To Make Rendered Bacon Fat

Bacon fat is a versatile ingredient that adds a sumptuousness to every dish it touches. This recipe will teach you how to render and store it.

Preparation: 10 minutes
Cooking: 10 minutes
Total: 20 minutes



  • strips of raw bacon


  1. Heat a large skillet on medium-low heat. Lay out several strips of raw bacon. Let the strips cook for 10 or 15 minutes, turning them occasionally.

  2. When the bacon strips are nicely browned and crispy, use tongs or a fork to lift them out of the pan and place them on paper towels (to absorb the excess fat) on a plate.

  3. Pour the remaining fat in the pan into a jar, and put the jar into your refrigerator. The bacon grease will solidify to a slightly off-color white. When cooking bacon again, pull out the jar and add more of the excess fat to it.

  4. The solid bacon bits can also be strained before pouring the fat into a jar.
