    Rendering lard photo essay

    Primal Fuel
    The pics pretty much tell the whole story - spent about 3 hrs in the crockpot on low, the cracklings were kinda browned but I might have gotten more lard by waiting more - doesn't matter because tonight I'm having kale with pork cracklings and hot sauce and a NY strip steak cooked in good old lard!
    Next time, I'll buy more, maybe have them grind it or at least cut it up smaller, but that's about it. The coffee filter worked perfectly.

    Edit: Having problems embedding this - help appreciated!

    Great! did you leave it uncovered? I've rendered on the stove before, but think this might be easier, esp if I don't have to keep checking on it.
    Where did you buy the lard?

    Also, your kitchen bears a striking resemblance to mine -- same counter, same crockpot, and I even have the glass containers with blue lids.
    Everything in moderation, including moderation.

    Is it bad that I'm staring at the meaty stuff left over and smacking my lips? The liquid lard doesn't even exist to me in that photo, LOL

    1) the meaty stuff is going into my veg tonight, never fear.
    2) about 8 oz or a little more - but I'll eat all the cracklings, so no waste actually.
    3) covered, low, about 3 hrs total. I think chopping it smaller or grinding it would speed the process and give more lard / less crackle.
    4) great minds think alike!

    Nice professional looking job, i wish my lard venture looked so good.

    Im pretty sure i messed up and burnt mine. It smells funny and i did not notice that the jar i was using still had a scent of pickles embedded in it. It kind of disgusted me (yeah the lard smelled like pickles), so i threw it out, but im willing to try it again, this time using a crock pot. I was impressed at the amount i got. I imagine this amount of lard would go a long way.
