comment How long will grease (from bacon or roast) keep in the fridge?
@sean: I'm sure it can go bad...I've just never seen it. Joy of Cooking states that bacon grease can be kept "indefinitely" which is somewhat surprisingly indefinite for such a widely circulated cookbook.

comment Are there alternatives to okra as a thickening agent?
Frozen okra is perfectly acceptable for a gumbo or stew. It's very unlikely anyone will be able to tell the difference, and yea, even in the south, fresh okra's not that great year round.

comment Can I re-cook a ham that was left out overnight?
@brendan: Well, we do, but this isn't that kind of ham. Still, in this situation, the curing we do do, plus being cooked, plus the house being cool, I wouldn't have any problem eating it.
