You may think butter is the best cooking fat. You may love bacon grease for cooking and think it is the best cooking fat. But you’re wrong. There is one, hands down, undisputed best cooking fat and that is duck fat. Duck fat has a savory flavor unmatched by other cooking fats and a high smoke point that helps perfectly brown all sorts of food. My favorite use of duck fat is to roast potatoes. Duck fat potatoes become perfectly browned and crisp with a rich flavor unmatched by potatoes roasted in other fats. Give it a try. You won’t go back. What’s your favorite use for duck fat? Leave us a comment with your uses for this magical fat!
