I made some veal stock and have a nice gelatinous result. I removed a layer of fat from the top. Can I cook with this? Any other possible uses?

Thanks for the replies. Could I use it to brown veal or would that be unnecessary?

You can freeze it and use it later on should you want to make a roux or just add some dimension to a recipe that otherwise calls for some sort of fat.

Sure you can.

Exactly. You can use it for whatever you'd normally use another fat. Sauteeing, sweating, searing, meat, veggies, etc... you could even use it to fry with. Remember back when McDonalds use Beef fat to make french fries?
