Picture of the lard I made a couple of months ago. If you have never made lard it is very easy. The only hard part is finding the fat to make it. When we ordered our 1/2 of a beef I also ordered 5 lbs of pig fat. It wasnt very expensive at all and actually the bag was heavier than 5 lbs. To make the lard all I did was put it in a pot on the stove and melt it down. My pan wasnt very big so as it melted I added more and when I got about 2 inches of fat on the bottom I just poured it in the canning jar. I used a funnel so I wouldnt drip any on my stove. The little bits of meat and gristle ends up on the bottom of your pan. I threw them away but some people like to eat them. I ended up with what you see above about 1 3/4 quarts of lard.
Cant beat biscuits made with lard!
Some people really dont like the smell of the melting fat but the fat I had did not smell. The pigs were pasture raised so that might have made a difference. Would I do this again? Yep sure would. Have I convinced you it's easy? Hope so because it was.
