MMM…Bacon! Most say it’s one of the greatest breakfast, lunch, dinner or really whenever foods. Others say it is the best reason to wake up in the morning along with being the hardest thing to cook shirtless. Bacon satisfies any non vegetarian’s senses and taste buds. But after you cook this delectable treat, you are left with grease and you might wonder what to do with it.
NEVER, EVER pour bacon grease down your sink! It’s thick, slimy and can cause many problems to your pipes. The grease will harden along the inner walls of the pipes causing them to clog. The only way to remove the hardened grease is to scrape it out. No matter how quickly you pour hot water down the drain, the grease will eventually harden. Too much grease in your pipes will require the attention of a plumber. If this problem moves down to the sewer, it can cause even more problems. These kinds of build ups are responsible for about 47 percent of the sewer overflows that happen in the U.S. ever year.
The best way to dispose of the bacon grease is to let it cool in the pan and scrape it out into the trash. You can also pour the grease into a separate container and dispose of the container after the grease cools.
If you are a bacon enthusiast, instead of dumping the grease out, here are a few recipes to recycle the bacon grease, http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2012/08/21/bacon-fat-recipes_n_1813057.html.
