Is it safe? - Leftover "drippings" from a chicken with garlic recipe
After skimming through my copy of 'Microwave Gourmet' that probably hasn't left the bookshelf since the late eighties, I decided to try out a "combine chopped garlic, chicken broth, and chicken pieces - then nuke' recipe.
I ended up with a lot of "juce" that I saved thinking that I could (at the very least) use the seperated fat as a "faux garlic schmaltz" for something in the future.
I then recalled the food safety warnings regarding garlic infused oil being linked to botulism and wondered if I should rethink my plan. Any thoughts?
Much like a roasted chicken purchased at the market, the details you provide sound like the same....with the exception of the chicken broth. I place dripping and juice into a pot along with the bones and fill the container or bowl with water to extract as much of it as I can....as the starter for chicken soup recipes.
Yes, it's safe.
