Alert the Crisco Police! Violation!

my aunt, who was severely anemic and underweight, needed to gain some twenty-five pounds in order to gain a medical release allowing her to emigrate to america. my dad (her brother) shipped her a number of cans of crisco to help her put on the needed pounds. about six months later, we were able to reunite at ellis island with my dear, sweet, newly pudgy auntie!!:) (apparently, they did not heed the warning....)

Just like cheap grocery store bakery cake icings? You know the kind... an inch thick, no flavor and that tell-tale 'coat yer mouth like motor oil' feeling?

Recipe:

5 1/2 cups Hi Ratio shortening ( sweetex)
5 pounds sifted powdered sugar
Flavorings

SWEETEX = Partially hydrogenated Soybean and Palm Oils with Mono- And Di-Glycerides added

YUM!

say what you will about crisco, but the homemade doughnuts and french fries that i deep fried in crisco many years ago, are still the standard i use for excellence when doing comparisons today....

you are absolutely right, robo! shoot me right now.

just got my second shipment in the mail of a case of 1 1/2 oz. containers of duck fat from amazon, but, sadly, i don't think it's enough for fries.
