Rendering Fat For Cooking Use
Posted By Tipnut On May 31, 2007 @ 1:40 pm In Food,Food Tips | 3 Comments
If you make it a habit to trim the fat from your meats before cooking, don’t throw away the fat–you can render it to use in cooking. This process will give you homemade lard. Cheap & easy to do!
For large amounts of lard making, check with meat and butcher shops where you can buy fresh fat by the pound.
Make sure to always be near when heating the fat, it can start on fire if the heat is too high.
Rendering fat like this to make lard that we can use in our cooking may not seem a healthy choice to some (cholesterol anyone?), but there are others who believe traditional fats from natural sources, not man-made processed fat, to be healthier than what we’re consuming today.
