  • Ssssscooooore! Got lard!

    Well, got it reserved at least. Turns out one of our local ranchers does his own butchering and also some for other folks, both livestock & game. He said there are always a few 4-H kids who raise pigs and he processes them. I asked him about beef offal too. Sit down - he usually just throws the lard and offal out. ????????? Don't you love it!

    I'll have to do my own rendering - no big whup. The cheapest (already rendered) lard I could find online was almost $10 lb. before shipping and I've found it for free. I will offer to pay him something for his trouble because I want to keep this source available, but damn - piggy paydirt, fer sur.

      If you trust the source, ask for liver and kidneys, too. (Lots of good nutrients in both, but potential for nasty toxins as well, depending on how the animal ate.)
