We must use different lard. If my lard smelled like bacon, I'd be burning my tongue licking it out of the pan and I'd never use olive oil again.

I guess so. Where did you get your lard from? I got mine from a whole-animal butcher shop. I went to a class where the butcher demonstrated how to break down a half a pig and I bought a few pounds of the fat right then.

I put it in an enameled cast iron dish and baked it at a low temperature for a few hours. Some bits stuck to the side of the dish and caramelized. Mmmmm.

The only place I've even seen lard for sale is at Winco. It comes in a bucket under the brand name Snowcap or something similar.
