Disposing of Drippings

About a month ago I saw a post on Pinterest from a woman on how to dispose of your meat drippings after cooking without clogging your pipes.  Her idea was ok but I like my way better so here it is.....

I like Hillshire Farms lunch meats so after we finish eating the meat, I save the containers for all sorts of things, including drippings.  After cooking I pour the fat into the container.  Even though the container is made of plastic I haven't melted one yet.  Then I put the cover on and pop it in the freezer.  I keep it there and keep adding to it until it's full, and then I toss it.  You could also use coffee or soup cans as long as you have a place to store it in your freezer where you don't have to worry about spilling.  Personally, I like having a lid on it, just in case.

  1. We often use old plastic containers like sour cream tubs and these lunch meat containers, but I've never thought to freeze them and use them until they are full, which is a great idea because we end up throwing out containers that are only partially full of the drippings/grease. Thanks for the idea!


I love all your comments, but admittedly have been a slacker about replying to all your kind words. I've recently received a bit of spam on my posts so will now be moderating any comments - and not allowing anonymous commenting. I hope that will help me stay on top of replies.
