TO KEEP DRIPPING

To store some good dripping so that it will keep well, the dripping should be well boiled with water to remove any impurities, the whole, mixture allowed to get cold, and the dripping removed from the top. Any sediment adhering to the lower side of the dripping should be carefully scraped away. The dripping should then be melted and made very hot to evaporate any moisture that may be left in it: It should be poured boiling hot into a billy or a dry and heated earthenware jar. The vessel should be filled brimful, and a lid or cover put on at once. A little wax may be run round the edges of the cover to keep it airtight.
