I had not been able to find it anywhere by us in MA. The Food Police probably won't allow it to be sold.
However, Amish communities have no problem with it, so I get a tub or two whenever we visit our kids in OH. I think the last price I paid for pure rendered lard was $1.89 a pound. If I lived back home we could have worked out a deal for me to ship it to you. Sorry.
I've used it for pie crusts. Makes an old-fashioned, flaky crust. The flavor is a bit different, though, so I mix it about half and half with butter. My SIL and her hubby don't like the taste of lard in the crust at all. That's OK by us, since we get an entire pie to ourselves. Hmm, that might not be a good thing...

I've bought it the last two trips in to OH and still can't remember to use it for savory stuff.
