Okay, I have another question that I probably already know the answer to

So- I have Armour brand lard. The ingredients listed are lard and hydro aged lard. The hydronated is bad, right? Even without "partially" attached?

sounds like a play on words to disguise what might be bad for you.

How many people know what 'hydro aged lard' is? They put some fat under a waterfall for a month???

Yes, I avoid grocery store lard for that reason. I buy lard from a farmer who sells lard made from pastured/deep-bedded pork. It's just rendered pig fat. It costs a little more and it's a little harder to obtain, but it's worth it to me. If you can find a source of pig fat you can also render your own lard fairly easily. Eat Wild and Local Harvest are two websites that have info on where to find these types of products locally. There are also internet sources to buy high quality lard and other animal products, such as U.S. Wellness Meats and Fatworks (though I haven't purchased from either of them yet).

Thanks! I'll ditch the green and white tub and check out those sites. I've been looking at the local whole foods stores, but I get funny looks when I ask for non-hydrogenated lard-and, failing that, I'll get hold of some pork fat and google "rendering."

There's a crock-pot rendering method that's supposed to be quite easy, but I've never tried it myself.

I haven't looked at our local farmer markets or natural food stores for lard, but the grocery store did not have any brand that wasn't hydrogenated. What brand can I buy online that is just plain ol' organic lard?

I listed a couple of online sources in post #3.
