    Or you go buy a porc shoulder with the skin and fat still on, the more the merrier. Peel off the skin and most of the fat, chunk it up into crouton sized bits and slowly fry up the whole mess in a pot, as the fat melts spoon it out into a jar.

    This will produce a goodly amount of rendered porc lard and if you keep the heat low and dont burn the remains, you will have the tastiest porc popcorn to nibble on.

    I do this about once a month as money allows and I have a 1 liter jar of lard to cook with and it be tasty.

    Also if you ever crave popcorn for real, making the popcorn in the lard is very yummy, you get less kernals left over than with butter for some reason and yeah different but delish.

    I'll definitely keep an eye out for pork shoulder, that's a great idea! Unfortunately all of the food (except local fish and crab) is shipped here so even finding such a shoulder might be difficult.

    Allergic to butter? Is it a casein or lactose allergy? Maybe try making butter from another animal's milk? Just a thought.
    Stumbled into Primal due to food allergies, and subsequent elimination of non-primal foods.

    26lbs lost since cutting the crap.

    It's a histamine response to a hormone from the mother cow. Clarified butter might be safe but since I get two weeks of discomfort for consuming dairy, I have not yet tried. I believe that it is safe for me to consume goat dairy, but I've only found goat cheese in town so far. The health food store in town is not very large... I'll look into getting some goats butter shipped in if I make an order at a place like US Wellness. Or maybe visit the Asian market.

    CW gripe: most of the food shipped in to Juneau follows the SAD! I'm lucky that grass-fed is catching on, but other stuff is still fringe. Good luck getting marrowy bones, for example.

    Oh I just remembered something that happened like a year ago. Not really "conventional wisdom" as it was uhm. Ignorance seems like too harsh of a word, but yeah.

    I was visiting my mom and bought some eggs to cook for everyone, for breakfast. My stepdad refused to eat them because they were brown instead of the white and he thought they may have been "dirty" :O

    Brown eggs are brown because they took the "other" route out of the chicken, right?

    Stories like that make me realize how disconnected some people are from food. As a chef I once worked with a gal who when offered fresh eggs from our chickens, declined because of the very fact that they were straight from our chicken coop not from a grocery store. Apparently that reminded her that the eggs came out of chickens rather than magically appearing in the refrigerator section to the supermarket. She didn't like to think about where her food came from. This gal had trained at the SF Culinary Institute and grew up rural CA. Where the heck did she think eggs came from?! People like that probably aught to just eat some sort of human engineered "food" substance.
    Life is death. We all take turns. It's sacred to eat during our turn and be eaten when our turn is over. RichMahogany.

    Doing my bench workout, I asked for a 50-ish dude to stand there on my last set just in case. Gave the instructions not to touch the bar at all unless I was clearly being crushed to death.

    Him: "How many are you going for?"

    Me: "Three at least, I hope."

    Him: "Son, you'll never get strong lifting something just three times."

    Me: [Looking at the 245 pounds I was benching with a 2-second pause on my chest each rep] "Uh...yeah."

    Well food (or the act of consuming it, I guess!) is a psychological experience as much as anything. Can kinda make sense of where she's coming from, but she still sounds pretty crazy for passing up such good eggs!

    Ask him to explain robin eggs, or really any other bird egg that has markings on it. There are chickens that lay blue/green eggs. Still taste fine.
