  • 'Nother big score - I got lard!

    And the best part - it's in my freezer, not my ass!

    A while back I made a connection with a local rancher/butcher. He'll be cutting up my grass-fed cow this fall and I told him I was also interested in lard if he had some. At the time he didn't, but his wife called me and said he'd just done a pig and do I still want the lard? Hell yes! So I've got a big ol' box of lard in the freezer to render as needed. Happy.

    Oh yeah, it was free. They usually just toss it out.

      Woo hoo. I had tried to get some this winter from my butcher but the hogs they were getting had just enough fat for their sausage making and stuff so I could never get it. Today I decided to call and see if they happened to have some and the man said I hit the jack pot this week because they had plenty. I ordered fiv pounds of fat to start with. I think they told me before they charged 1.50 per pound. Not free but good anyway

      Have fun with your pig fat!

          ROTFLMAO! Freudian, much?

          Gawd, no way I'd be happy about that, ewuuue.

            Good one! My butcher gives me free lard too. Word of warning - there is a limit to how long it will sit in the freezer - I had some smelled rancid after about 3 months in there. I tend to render it down pretty fast since then... It lasts ages, rendered and in the fridge.
