Does anyone here recycle their cooking oil?
May sound like a silly question, but a friend and I have been making various dishes over the past year (it gives me a chance to learn how to cook). I was surprised when she pulled out this old tin can with holes on top in order to reuse the corn oil held within. Essentially, after cooking a meal she takes the used oil and drains it through the little holes on top which then collects in the tin can. When it is time to do another meal they just reuse the old oil for the new dish. It is not thrown out until the oil gets "cloudy."
Seems her family has been doing this for years due to the fact, while growing up, it was too expensive for them to purchase new oil for every meal. Does anyone else do this or know anyone who does this? Just curious ...
