    I do the same, I always render down my fat after we butcher a pig.

    When I put my lard in mason jars I end up with a gel at the bottom. It is white and creamy except about an inch at bottom…. anybody know why that happens and what I can do to prevent it from happening next time? We just butchered a hog yesterday and I want to make lard that looks as pretty as Suzanne’s.

    How do you make lard? I know that you render it, but how? put it in a pot and cook it until it is thick and white?

    I am so jealous. I very much wanted to cook a duck over the holidays, specifically to have access to all the yummy duck fat everyone keeps talking about how great it is to use in cooking. I could not convince my husband to buy a duck. Every time I talked about it to him or anyone else all they would say is how greasy cooked duck is. Well, yes! That’s why I want one! lol I’m looking forward to reading about what you do with your fabulous pork lard.

    I put up some pints of lard a few weeks ago as well. And chicken broth and beef broth. I used the book I won here for canning the broth. Thank you!

    About how much fat did you start with to get the 3 quarts? I’d like to try this but want to start small. Thanks.

    Beautiful! Looks like you did a super job of rendering….no tan color at all. I am completely out but have a hog ordered.

    I am a small town girl who has learned so much about farm life through this wonderful blog, thanks to Suzanne!
    Can someone tell me why ,or how ,this creamy white lard makes great food? Is there something in particular this would be great for? The only thing I use lard for is pie pastry. Thank you for any info!

    I use lard for biscuits also, along with pie pastry, and also some cookies and other things. Anything you might use shortening for, lard is better!

    Thanks,Suzanne! I’ve never would think to use it in cookies. Somehow butter has always seemed more palatable than even shortening. But I guess why not lard!

The Slanted Little House

"It was a cold wintry day when I brought my children to live in rural West Virginia. The farmhouse was one hundred years old, there was already snow on the ground, and the heat was sparse-—as was the insulation. The floors weren’t even, either. My then-twelve-year-old son walked in the door and said, “You’ve brought us to this slanted little house to die." Keep reading our story....
