: just found this site..great.. does anyone know about using "chicken fat" in making homemade soap???
: i know i read yrs ago that you could... but do you render it like beef tallow or pig lard?? also about amount useing it with other fats ??? ..any help would be great..promised someone id get info for them ...thanks..
I used duck fat in soap one time and it worked out just fine. I collected it after roasting a couple of ducks one night, just put it in the fridge until it solidifies, then take the fat out of the broth that is left. There won't be much broth anyway because duck is so fatty.
I don't really remember how I substituted it into the recipe. I probably just treated it like tallow, which is what I usually use.
