The Country Crock containers repurposed for leftovers was a staple of my Southern upbringing. Though my Memaw stored her bacon grease in a special little tin pitcher with a lid — it had a strainer in the top, so you could pour the hot grease through and it would be filtered, then you’d lift the strainer out and scoop out the grease you wanted.

And everything she made was delicious.
