How do you render lard? . I do mine by dicing the fat so it looks like this and then putting it into my slow cooker. I leave it for a few hours and then drain off the liquid that has formed by pouring the contents through a metal sieve into a bowl. I then return the diced fat to the slow cooker continue the cooking. . I repeat this draining and replacing until the pieces of fat that are left are tiny, golden brown and solid. . I was interested to watch @thefunctionalforce’s reel last week where Ximena used salt and water in the process (and does more than one render using the later ones to make fat for skin products). . And I was reading the ‘fats’ section of Food in England by Dorothy Hartley this weekend where yet another process is described. . I’d love to hear about your way.
