question on leaf lard?

Dio di Romanese Jan 2, 2007 11:17 PM

Is it ok to freeze it?

    Yes, and some companies ship it frozen.

    Jo, last year I had success buying it online from Flying Pigs Farm in NY

    www.flyingpigsfarm.com

    Depending on where you live, it may or may not be easy to find in a butcher store.

      there is a thread in the Outer Boroughs board right now about rendered leaf lard
      and how it is available from Flying Pigs at Brooklyn's Grand Army Plaza greenmarket on Saturdays

      I'd like to know were you got it?

        It is the best thing to do. I form mine in those shortening stick containers first for easy use.

          Just unnecessary. It will keep over a year in your fridge.

            i'm with candy here. the problem with freezing it is that it makes it hard to scoop it out and measure it (unless you form it into sticks as becca does)

            It does keep in the fridge for over a year if rendered properly, so unless you have more than you think you will use in a year or so, i wouldn't bother to freeze it.

            Yes. No problem at all.
