    using dripping in cooking

    If I wanted to make up " dripping" i.e.; saved meat juices to use for cooking, can I mix the meats I use? Googling led me to beef dripping, duck dripping etc but no mention of just combining it all into one dish to save. I know I used to have dripping sandwhiches as a child which were delish. But never questioned how to do this myself.

    I'm interested because I've been reading that cutting out too much fat in the diet is not the best thing for mental health and conentration and that there ARE benefits in some of the old fashioned fats used. Mind you, it's contentious; one person will shun coconut oil and site heart problems - another will swear by its fatty fullness. Then there's the Innuit people who eat Seal and blubber and I think are quite healthy.

    I don't see why not, it will just add more wonderful flavors.

    My mom used meat drippings to make gravy. Homemade gravy beats the canned stuff by miles. Too bad you carrot munching vegans. You don't know what your missing. And you are gonna die anyway.

    You don't 'make up ' dripping, it just happens.... it is what is left in the bottom of the roasting tray when the meat is cooked.
    The idea is to pour off and save the fat, in an old chipped cup, normally without a handle , then use the meaty residue left behind to make your gravy with the water you cooked your fresh veg in.

    A lot of meat has been bred or trimmed to be low in fat these days, to be healthy.
    There are only two drippings for me, Beef and Pork,
    Pork dripping is unrefined Lard, you spread it thinly on white bread with a bit of jelly scooped from the bottom of the chipped cup and then lightly salted....my mouth is watering already.
    Beef Dripping is coarser, more rugged, than its pork equivalent, applied to white bread the same as pork, most unhealthy but delicious.

    They used to cook chips in beef dripping in the old days, until the health police came along and spoiled it for everyone.....now it is bland Vegetable oil everywhere....and fat kids.....everywhere.

    All you've gor to worry about are the relative strengths of the flavours, and (possibly) who's eatin'.
