Save Your Bacon Grease

It is healthier to cook with than olive oil and other liquid oils.  A recent study showed lower levels of blood triglycerides after cooking with lard (pork fat) compared to olive oil.  Butter and coconut oil are going to be in the same boat as bacon grease (lard) because they are also a safe saturated fat that is solid at room temperature thus having the same properties.  These saturated fats are more stable when heated reducing free radical and oxidation incidence thus making them safer overall.  Just another health myth dispelled.
