Lard Shopping Tip

Most lard sold in supermarkets contains additives. If you wish to render your own lard, look for fatback, the hard fat between the skin and muscle on the back of the pig.

Lard Cooking Tip

If you render your own lard, you should always refrigerate it to prevent it from going rancid.
