rendered duck fat -- what do you use it for?

got some of this yesterday, when our host was going to pour it down his drain. (yikes).
help with ideas, please...
If you have enough, you can use it to confit duck legs. Also good for roasting potatoes, and I use some whenever I make duck soup using the carcass.
The best French fries I ever had were fried in duck fat. (Thanks to Chef Chris DeBarr, formerly of The Delachaise, New Orleans.)
How much did you manage to save? Someone else asked about this a little while back:
I have two or three jam jars of this stuff in my fridge at any given time. And we are talking about a tiny European fridge. I wonder if there's anything (savory) that I don't use it for…
