Thanks - I was curious if I could render it down - I'll try this!

It is great for pie crust, so I've heard. I would definitely use it for a meat pie if I were making one.

lots of people here do not understand the mechanics of fat metabolism, including saturated fat.

I'd much rather have french fries cooked in beef tallow than the crap Canola they use and tout as "heart healthy". Nothing could be further from the truth.

I had a T-bone the other night and it had a little fat on it - Kitties ate well that night.

I put it in the freezer for now, I think I will use it next time I make a gravy or roux. Thanks for all the replies!
All good cooking/critter treat ideas. Do you have cast iron pans you can season with it? I use virtually any meat fat for that... bacon, sausage, etc.

That's otherwise known as tallow.

That's funny. My first thought was to add it to ground venison. Used to live in the boonies with a hunter man in a previous life.

Then I thought about those heart healthy hushpuppies I ate in Tennessee when I lived there. Balls of cornmeal deep friend yum! LOL!

Sounds like your best bet is to make birdseed cakes for the winter with it. Would actually make nice Christmas gifts.
