Can I render the solidified fat that accumulates on top of stock after refrigeration?

Enlighten me. How does one "render" fat, and what do you do with it afterwards?

Nihon,

When I want to render my bacon drippings, I heat it over low heat until it separates from any little brown or burned bits. Then I pour it through several layers of cheese cloth. I use the rendered drippings when I want a little bacon flavor in what I'm cooking.

Okay, hot shot. You want to tell us about your new toy, so we can share in the fun?

Hey, sweetie--I pointed and clicked but keep getting the message that a connection could not be established--gads! the story of my life! Is http://www.foodwine.com/food/egg/1296/schmaltz.html. the URL you had imbedded?

Well I just tried it again and it worked. Now when our music director refers to something as schmaltzy I'll know what he's talking about. Sounds to me like a heart attack waiting to happen--but we all have to go somehow, sometime. ;-)

Just testing something out, Jean. Trying to see just how smart or dumb, I am.

I must be somewhere in between, 'cause I can't figure out what MC did.

Anyway, that's the site he posted.

Carolina, Kathy Kienholz posted this the other day. I think it got lost in the crash so I'll post it for you here.

Type this:

{a href="http://www.yahoo.com/"}click here{/a}

Replace the { and } brackets with opening and closing brackets (they're above the comma and period on your keyboard) replace the "www.yahoo.com" with the URL of the site you want to link to, and replace "click here" with whatever you want to appear in you message as the link.

Try it again. If I can do it anyone can.
