Do you bake or cook with lard?
Is there anything that you still have to use lard to make. I come from the old school that we raised are own livestock to eat and sell. We knew want they ate and how they were raised. I always helped Mom render the lard when we butchered a hog and thankfully the head alway went to my grand parents. There are several butcher shops near me as many farmers still raise their own. So is there anything you still rather use lard for instead of shorting or oil? Someone gave me 2 lbs. of lard. I need to make a trip over to the locker plant and buy a few things that are hard to find in the store. I am hungary for Ox tail Caribbean style with spinners. Thanks for your input Patty.
