I know this will come across as a very strange recipe to many. I prefer to render my own lard, because I am not adding chemicals. Lard in the stores in not creamy like home rendered lard and contain chemicals. This lard makes the best pie crust :) I freeze what I am not using, but always keep a pail in my refrigerator for baking.

Ingredients

How to Make Home Rendered Lard

Step-by-Step

  1. Cut the fat into large pieces removing meat. Place fat in large roaster. Place is a 200 F degree oven and allow to melt.
  2. Melting 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.
  3. I use an ice cream pails to strain it into. It will appear brown. Allow to cool and you will have white fluffy lard.
