I put this bag of pig fat in the fridge a few days ago. So today had some time and rendered it down. I need to make more soap because I have only 2 bars with lard left.
I had 2 pots going, then went down to the one pot. I love how the house smells while doing this. Like uncured bacon.
I don't like cracklings so the dogs will get what's left. They love it.
And I got 4 1/2 quarts. It looks good. I like to cook with it too.
Has anyone else rendered lard before? What do you use it for?
