  1. Hi, Looking at the recipe for your maple bacon carrots—how long does bacon grease stay good in the fridge? I have grassfed, hormone free etc. bacon and like to use the grease but wondering how long it stays good for?

    Thanks,

    1. Hi Linda,

      We keep bacon fat for months in the fridge. Sounds like you are sourcing it right so your bacon fat should be clean and healthy. We use it for so many recipes! Just keep it in a jar with a lid
