DON’T just throw away rendered lard in the pan from bacon. God put it in the bacon for a reason — especially if it’s smoked bacon and you’re looking for something to coat a turkey before you roast or smoke it….
Shall I compare thee to a strip of bacon?
Thou art more sizzly and more marbled:
Rough winds do shake the darling bubbles of bacon,
And bacon’s grease hath all too short a calorie count:
Sometime too hot the kitchen griddle cooks,
And often is the toaster setting dimm’d;
And every flavor from flavor sometime declines,
By chance, or nature’s changing course, untrimm’d;
But thy eternal bacon shall not fade
Nor lose possession of that flavor thou ow’st;
Nor shall cholesterol brag thou wander’st in his shade,
When in eternal lines to time thou grow’st;
So long as men can smell or taste buds reckon,
So long lives this, and this gives life to bacon.
