When we bought a pig this spring we decided to get the fat to render down for ourselves. Now, being the perfectionist that I am, I left that bag of fat in my freezer for quite a while. Well, I finally decided to do something about it.
I had asked my folks how they did their lard, but they couldn't remember, so I found a post at http://www.myhumblekitchen.com/2011/02/how-render-lard-the-right-way-snow-white and set off on my adventure.

So that's it. It wasn't as hard and messy as I thought it would it would be and it sure is nice to have one more thing crossed off my to do list!
