  • reusing cooking oil....

    For cooking.
    I made fried chicken the other day and when I was pouring the oil into my quenching bucket. I thought why couldn't I strain it pour it into a gallon jug label it chicken oil and use it again for fried chicken. we reuse Bacon grease why not frying oil.
    Anyone try this or does this? Any thoughts on it?

      I have never reused oil from cooking chicken. I have, however, reused oil that I have used for potatoes, onions, etc.. also, bacon. If it is strained, I cant see why not.. but- thats just a guess. If its sealed?... Good question though!!
      If the zombies chase us, Im tripping you!!!

        Generally you can reuse cooking oils multiple times for frying. After it cools, I funnel it back into it's container, straining out bits of fried food, and mark the container with the "first use" date just for my reference. You could also tally mark on the container each time you use the oil.

        Once it starts to get darker in color, or after frying something like fish, it's time to discard and opt for fresh oil (fry fish and then try to use it later for chicken...may come out a little fishy tasting).
