A test run of my home rendered lard.

I've learned recently how to render my own lard with pork leaf fat in a slow cooker. It was reportedly higher quality lard with no hydrogenated fats. Now, I'd used store bought lard before so I thought this stuff would be about the same. Nope. It's superior! I made my first batch of buttermilk biscuits with my lard and they were the best I've ever made! My husband begged for more biscuits after I made a batch of eight. And there's only the two of us! I can't wait to try them with sausage gravy.
