What do you do with the oil after you fry a turkey in a large deep fryer?

Rating: 84

To maintain the high quality of fat or oil to be reused for deep fat frying, strain the oil and store in a closed container in cool darkness. Replace approximately 1/5 of the fat with new fat or oil for each use. Because no exact storage time could be found for "reused" oil, it is best to use within one month.
