How many fats do you have in your kitchen?

(Doug) #21

Olive Oil
Duck Fat

Somewhat minimalist, without even bacon grease, but we do have a lot of bacon.


Just so everyone knows, this is a photo taken in @OldDoug’s kitchen:

Macadamia Nuts ~ serving size?

:smile: Had my wife call me this morning to specifically tell me not to get more bacon.

I am the one of the two of us that is doing keto, the wife is just doing a lower carb thing in general but doesn’t track it anymore.

We have the following:

Chosen Foods Avocado Mayo
Bacon/Pork Belly fat
Nanak Ghee
EV Olive Oil
Kerrygold Butter

And I think there is probably a bottle of Wesson Oil still down there in the cupboard.

Just in case Cows become extinct… I keep a few bricks of butter on hand.-- In all seriousness, the wife and I probably go through a block every 7-10 days. We stock it up when it’s on sale. Don’t lick your screen! :joy:

She’ll be awfully sorry when the bacon runs out, then. :bacon::bacon:

@OldDoug um… We need to talk about your wife. She’s a wonderful, beautiful (I imagine) person. But… Lol

I like chicken schmaltz but never have any on account of eating all the skin!

Ouch. David - you are right. :blush:

I was home for two weeks over Christmas and the New Year, had gotten a boneless pork loin and made most of it into chops, with the remainder being a pork roast. Sous vide cooked all of them and gradually ate it up - searing or just warming up already-seared stuff in a pan holding the fat from cooking a bunch of bacon. In the end, there wasn’t much left…

I threw some bacon grease away a few days ago. I use it a LOT, for cooking a LOT of things, but we still accumulate it faster than we can use it.

I also threw away a big lot of lard that I completely killed deep-frying some crumbed egg yolks.

Olive oil, butter, tallow and coconut oil.

Sure I throw away surplus or just to keep it fresher. And if I fried chicken in it. But egg yolks? :crazy_face:That’s quite the culinary adventure.

Especially given the mess I made of them after the effort they took. However, you watch how awesome I make them sound in the food thread :slight_smile:
