Patience is a virtue with quantities of this size. Took about 14 hours, all told. Netted out a year's supply of "butter", so well worth the effort.

Northern Monkey Girl, are you rendering all of that in one go, or freezing the bulk of it in 3 Kg bags??!!
Haha, I think I've got my system sorted after a few hours yesterday. The small cast iron casserole isn't worth trying (heat wan't right); the large stock pot takes the non-back-fat okay in huge chunks; leaving the cubed back fat in the (small!) slow cooker that I was meaning to throw out.
I need sharper knives.
I did manage to sort into back fat, non-back fat, and scraps for the dog; it's sat in the porch while awaiting processing.
I'm also looking up soap recipes and scrabbling around for jars and tubs!
