What Is Schmaltz?

Definition: Schmaltz

Schmaltz is rendered fat made by cutting chicken (or goose) fat into small pieces and melting it in a pan with aromatics such as onions or apples. Known for its fragrant aroma, schmaltz is used in the same applications as butter or lard, such as sautéing, frying, or as a spread on bread. It's popular in German and Ashkenazi Jewish cuisine.
