Raw Trim Lard

Raw Trim Lard

$2.50

While butter is making a comeback, rightfully reclaiming it’s place from the usurper margarine, lard remains relatively reviled among the general public, despite the fact that it has a fatty acid composition similar to olive oil and is extraordinarily rich in vitamin D, as long as the pigs are pasture raised.  Trim lard is the fat trimmed from the entire pig.  It has a subtle back-note of meatiness that hydrogenated oils and even lard from the grocery store which is bleached and deodorized lacks.  It’s high smoke point (370F) makes it ideal for frying and it gives braised meats and vegetables a rich mouthfeel.  When you purchase lard in this form, it will require rendering but it’s super easy!  See the FAQ section for instructions on how to do that.
