Tip of the hat to regular reader Chris for posting this in the comments of yesterdays post about Grease Canisters.
This Disney cartoon from 1942 is a public service message about keeping rendered fat, which can be used in munitions. Amazing both as a piece of history, but also from a factual point of view, how much rendered fat do we throw away each year? And who knew how useful it was? I mean sure for making corn bread or duck confit, but bombs and bullets?
