I put the bacon grease into small paper cups (let it cool a little before you do this) then cover w/ plastic wrap and put in the freezer. Use for the start of soups instead of butter or oil, also for the start of chile or other bean dishes. Take out the paper cup and it will defrost very quickly and you can scoop the bacon fat out. Or, I have cut off the paper cup w/ a scissor and then use a knife to cut off the bottom where any particles might have settled. It gives a nice subtle flavor to whatever you use it for.
