Apply it directly to your arteries.

My mother saved the bacon grease, but I think it was out of habit, having lived through WWII, when you saved the bacon grease to GIVE OLD HITLER A BLACK EYE. I don't remember her ever digging it out and cooking with it.

I cook in it once in a while -- generally the eggs I'm having with the bacon or, if I'm frying chicken, I'll throw a rasher or two into the skillet to flavor the oil. But that's always freshly-rendered grease.
