Yesterday, my wife had some free time to cook up some bacon for a Bacon Cheddar Muffin recipe she wants to try later in the week(yes, please!). Because she is as thoughtful as she is beautiful, she figured rather than let the bacon grease go to waste, she would add it to my jar in the fridge. what she didn't know though is that i always filter my grease into a bowl to cool for a bit before adding it to the cold jar kept in the fridge.
What a nice clean break...and a perfect opportunity to teach my girls the effects of thermal stress.
Due to her being smart enough to pour it over a bowl, not much product was lost, and i was able to transfer the surviving grease into a new jar...tragedy averted.
