Home Rendered Lard
Featured Pinch Tips Video
- fat from pig (can be purchased from a butcher or place that processes meat)
1Cut the fat into large pieces removing meat. Place fat in large roaster. Place is a 200 F degree oven and allow to melt.
2Melting can take a while, but a hot oven will burn the lard. Be patient! When melted strain through a strainer lined with 2-3 layers of cheese cloth.
3I use an ice cream pails to strain it into. It will appear brown. Allow to cool and you will have white fluffy lard.
