You pour it into a empty glass container, cover it, and put it in the fridge. It will harden and you can use it for cooking later or just throw it in the trash. Don't pour it down the sink!

Bacon grease is a food group to some of us country girls! You can fry nearly anything in it for extra flavor. I converted my city boy husband to popcorn popped in bacon grease very early in our marriage. Bacon grease can be used instead of oil in salad dressings. Wilted lettuce w/bacon grease is yummy! Corn bread made w/bacon grease is so tasty! As with any food, moderation is the key to eating healthy, but don't throw out that bacon grease unless your Dr forbids you to use it!

Just because someone enjoys bacon fat from time to time does not mean they will have any issues. All things in moderation. Drink enough water and it can kill you. Does that mean water is bad for you? Of course not. You would die without water. Many of us would die (or want to) without bacon fat

Healthy

The reason for grease of a cooked meat, like bakon, to be unhealthy it's the fact that it was cooked once already.
The cholesterol is there, but the cooking process on a fat creates free radicals and breaks fat into smaller parts.
So bakon grease is not like butter assomeone said, it is much worse than butter.
Never utilise any fat, including oil, twice. If you fry. Don't use it twice.
If you use it twice, all protective parts of a fat were gone of first cook and second would create many unhealthy compounds. We are not talking of cholesterole, but mutagens.
