How long does bacon fat stay good at room temperature?

Anyone have any idea?

Decades...(lol)... or about a month is what I usually do. I keep it on the back of my stove and if it gets too far ahead of me I freeze some.

Of course, my "room temperature" is an air conditioned 72║f. It's probably different at 95║.

Same as Louis I keep mine on the back of the stove for at least a month or more. I always have some just sitting in my cast iron skillet at the ready.

If it has no water in it, yes, years. I have seen beautiful, old ceramic crocks full of bacon fat on the back of many a stove.

If you have more than you can use, you can re-render it and make soap. I had a neighbor who used to give me a coffee can full, every few months. I made a two-year supply of bath soap. It's great.

My mother ( and everyone else of that era ) had an on-going canister of bacon fat on the stoves. Maybe once a year during spring cleaning, it got emptied and cleaned.

Thanks!

I'll have to start a jar of just plain bacon grease. We pour all our leftover fats in a jar I put in the freezer until it's full and then I throw it out.

I save pork, chicken and beef fat separately in the freezer and use it in cooking when called for. There's some amazing flavors in the fat.

How is it that you guys have so much left over? We usually cook four slices of bacon, and then do scrambled eggs in the same pan. The eggs absorb most or all of the grease.
