What do you do with the leftover crud
« on: December 16, 2007, 11:01:22 AM »
Filtering cubies thru screens into drums and let gravity do the rest.  End up with lots of fried food chunks, water and "baby poop" sludge.  Taking the stuff to the transfer station but starting to get odd looks. Don't want to just dump in in the ground.   Is there anything useful to do with the leftovers of this process?  Any ideas or thoughts would be greatly appreciated.

Cheers, Fred

Captfred,
  I have an annual summer solstice party that includes a LARGE bonfire. The leftovers are useful for getting the flames into the 50-60' range when used liberally. Building on an elevated platform this year to allow more air underneath and hoping for 70-80'. There are probably some places where this would not be appropriate.
  They're also useful for attracting wildlife, from small rodents up to and including bears. Perhaps a "roadside attraction" wildlife preserve could turn into a profitable venture.
   Hope this helps ;),  Bill

I should compost.  Or fertilize if used lightly enough.

I think it looks a little like this.

My disposal is much more mundane. I dig a hole in the gravel my barn sits on and dump it in there. I don't know but I'll bet there are millions of very happy microbes and fungi down there.

Thanks, Geno

Looks like gravy made from the skillet drippins after cooking up some pork chops. I'm thinkin fresh biscuits will do it up good. ;D
