The Pig and Pepper bacon chocolate chip cookie. Our take on @sarah_kieffer pan-bang chocolate chip cookies as seen on @thebakefeed insta page......our spin uses a combination of #butter and #baconfat and finished with se salt and a piece of candied bacon
The very last bit of my homemade cured & smoked bacon....this is the ends of the belly when I cubed it for slicing. Anyway - had to render some fat for southern cornbread! A special request for Jeff's birthday today. #bacon#homemadebacon#baconfat
Whenever I make bacon I always save the fat to use as for cooking throughout the week. - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - -
Bacon fat is made up of roughly 40% saturated fat and 45% monounsaturated fat, making it an amazing option to cook with! When looking for the best cooking fat it’s important to consider two factors.
1) the SOURCE of the fat (think naturally occurring in the world, not in a factory)
2) It’s fatty acid composition (more saturated fat equals a more stable substance). A more stable fat is less likely to become damaged or oxidized in the cooking process. This way you can be confident that you are still putting a wonderful lipid into your body that will help you thrive, stay full longer, plus it tastes hella good 🤗💕🥓
