I am rendering some in the crock pot as we speak. Did you know it is actually GOOD for you? It’s high in monounsaturated fats, Vitamin D, etc. Not to mention, it makes the best baked goods and it is awesome for frying. I am LOVING using it!
Here is a great article that I think does a nice job explaining Health benefits of Lard, why Lard was phased out by Crisco, how to render and what to look for. Take a minute to inform yourself! Or, just do a quick google search on the benefits of Lard, and I bet you will be surprised.
