Notes: Rendered chicken fat may be purchased in some supermarkets. To prepare your own in a freezer container save and freeze pieces of uncooked fat from chickens you are preparing to cook. when you have about ½ pound, thaw and place chicken fat in a heavy 2 quart saucepan, along with a large onion.

Cover and cook over low heat, stirring occasionally, until fat melts away from the membranes. Remove onion and strain fat into jar. Cover tightly and refrigerate until ready to use, no longer than 3-4 months.
