Cooking with schmaltz chicken fat
Schmaltz has served as the backbone of the Ashkenazi Jewish cooking tradition for generations. It's now making a major comeback with home cooks, as everyday chefs and the health community realize that lard isn't so bad for you, after all.*
Schmaltz is a joy to cook with and an easy way to add depth and richness to your favorite dishes. When merged with veggies, breads and meat dishes, schmaltz chicken fat boasts a savory base that's beyond what olive and vegetable oils can offer.
More schmaltz chicken fat recipes include leafy vegetables, stir fries, pan fried steaks, fish, poultry, soups, stews and comforting baked goods. For a special treat, you can spread it right on a piece of crusty bread like you would a high-quality butter or fine olive oil. And it's no exaggeration to say Schmaltz gives potatoes and other root vegetables a flavor that's unparalleled.
Your Bubbie's schmaltz was healthy after all!

This goes to show our grandparents' and great-grandparents' generations had an innate gift for enjoying good health by eating whole foods.
