That’s right. I’m talking about lard. Glorious, snow white leaf lard that will grace your table with the flakiest pie crust you've ever experienced. Lard is hardly ever considered anymore in the great crust debate because it’s so rare to find good, fresh leaf lard. Lard is specifically the fat rendered from a pig. Leaf lard, more specifically, is the delicate veiny fat that encases the organs - don’t get grossed out just yet. This is that fat that is rendered very slowed to produce that bright white, non-piggy smelling fat. Lard produced from pigs that are raised outdoors is packed with vitamin D, and is a superior form a fat. So, don’t be afraid to pick up that lard and use it in your crust!
Reminder: Orders for leaf lard should be placed by Monday, November 24th before noon for Pre-Thanksgiving delivery. Supplies are limited!
