    No, don't strain it. That's flavor. Tiny bacon pieces.

    Pour it into a jar, let cool to setting up, cover and put in the fridge forever.

    I have never had it spoil.

    Nah, you don't have to. But store it in an old glass jar because it will ruin your plastic stuff. If you want to strain it, do it through a fine mesh sieve, the paper towel method is just too messy!

    i would drain it through cheese cloth or a really smalled hole strainer, make sure you put it in a airtight container
