So, what is poultry fat?

Poultry fat is a rich, flavorful ingredient derived from rendered chicken or turkey fat. It is commonly used in various culinary preparations, ranging from sautéing vegetables to adding depth of flavor to sauces and gravies. Poultry fat is also a popular choice for making crispy fried foods, as it has a high smoke point and imparts a delicious savory taste. Despite its high calorie content, poultry fat is a good source of vitamin D and other essential nutrients. When used in moderation, this creamy, golden fat can add an indulgent touch to any dish.
