Vegetarians don't want to eat lard either.

When I can find it, I like to use palm oil. It's solid at room temperature without having trans or saturated fat.

The local health food store carries a vegan shortening that doesn't have weird chemicals in it, but it doesn't work as well as the palm oil.

May you live as long as you wish and love as long as you live.

Lard for me. I think it tastes much better and I can tell when the product is finished. Thanks for the laughs on the Feds... Good times.
