Why is coconut oil more preferred to cook with than Lard?
Newbie to cooking, but was told butter is not really for high temp or long cooking as it burns quickly.
Butter burns at around 325 degrees F. I recommend making your own ghee for higher heat applications. That is good til around 400-410 degrees F. There is no reason to ever cook higher than that since optimal fry temp is around 360 degrees F.
Don't put your trust in anyone on this forum, including me. You are the key to your own success.
I personally avoid pork fat because IMO it has unfavorable fat profile.
Me too. What I find confusing is that the rendered beef fat I bought from US Wellness Meats says "Beef Lard" on the containers. I always though lard was porcine and tallow was bovine. Maybe "tallow" sounded too much like candle making supplies to be marketable.
