So with the half hog we got in the spring, we also got 8 lbs of port fat, which as it turns out is perfect for making lard. It was the coldest day of the year so far yesterday and I decided it was time to make the lard.
It is not a hard process at all.
Step one — get a bunch of pork fat
Step twp — cut up pork fat
Step three — put into crock pot
Step four — render the fat
Step five — strain and put into jars
Step six — let it cool till it becomes white
We got 2 quarts, 2 pints and 1 cup. I am giving the two pints away, saving all the rest of us.
