Description

Lard, or rendered pork fat, is obtained by gently cooking leaf lard (the fat that surrounds the kidneys), or fatback (the fatty layer that rests above the pork loin) over very low heat to separate the fat from the protein. Ideal for baking, lard creates a flakiness that can't be replicated.
