Question Bacon Grease?

I also have to cook for my 82 year old step day who is type 2 diabetic, uncontrolled and stubborn as heck. I must make foods flavorful. I was wondering. Would it be bad to add a bit of bacon grease to my evoo when frying chicken?

If you have enough bacon grease, forget the EVOO entirely. Bacon grease has a higher smoke point than the olive oil, which degrades at heat high enough for frying. Bacon grease is one of the natural saturated fats that are good for us.

Another idea...a friend of mine's MIL used to render her chicken fat and save it and fry her chicken in it. Friend says it was the tastiest chicken she ever had! I haven't tried it, because I was scared of fat, but it does sound good with my new relationship with healthy fats!

Just use the bacon grease! I keep it in my fridge to fry stuff in. Just went out and bought 10 lbs of pure lard too. The cashier asked if I was making pies, and I just said yes... because if I said I'm frying anything and everything in it, she'd think I was nuts.

Just add bacon grease & other good fats to your lc, Gaye. That's the trick!

I gave you the ketogenic diet link last month.
