    I was planning on keeping the caul fats off our butchers this year and trying some recipes but I won't be using all of them immediately. What are some ways to store it so that it will remain intact? I know it's pretty perishable and I've read it can be frozen but are there certain storage methods that work best for it? Also do certain animals' fats go bad faster than others or is that a dumb question?

    Others who use various animal fats can help you more -- i'm sure there will be replies in a day or two. Personally, I find that the rendered lard I put into mason jars, store in frig, last "forever" if I don't break the seal. Once I open a jar, it stay good for months in frig. Kinda depends on how fast you use it. Have also frozen, then rendered later. No issues.

    Since I no longer raise beef, rarely buy huge bulk anymore, another will need to chime in on that. FarmerJan raises & butchers, she'll give you straight up answers.
