Prevent grease from clogging your drains and simultaneously feed the birds.
I love bacon, but I have old plumbing that can’t handle grease. So, after I cook bacon, I deglaze the pan with a few drops of water and let it cool. Then I put about a quarter-cup of cornmeal in the pan and smash it until the cornmeal has soaked up all the grease.
I take the greasy cornmeal mixture out to a dish on my fence where the wild birds are waiting. My pan is now nearly greaseless for washing, I was able to feed the birds, I haven’t used any paper towels to degrease the pan, and my plumbing is protected.
