Use it like butter -- on sandwiches, rolls, biscuits, etc.

Never thought of popcorn. I dont think I'd do it

as I recall, the depression was in the 30's, but I could be wrong, I wasnt there and I always will admit if I am wrong

I love bacon! Not had any in months. I'd like to avoid it the rest of my life. I cant eat anything in moderation (*if it tastes good, I keep eating!) so I have to just go cold turkey on these things but I know I'll have more, before long

Otherwise, bacon grease can be saved for eternity. Keep in tight container though

I make baked beans, I fry the onions in a little bit of the bacon grease. Any leftover bacon, goes in the beans of course.

When I do buy bacon I try to break it into three packages. I've tried four but bacon tastes good--(see* above)

oh and incidentally I should save the grease but I dont.
