Just made this recipe - only thing I wasn't sure about was leaving the bacon grease in the pot. Left it in - so may have a disgusting bowl of ice cream or really flavorful!

hey there,
you leave the bacon fat in the pot, it add flavor to the ice cream and it helps with the texture.

hope you like it

I did leave it in the pot - and turned out really smoky and creamy. Only question now is what would you pair this with? Crispy caramel cookie, creme brule - it has to go with something...
