Where can I find high quality lard?
Not the hydrogenated stuff, and preferably made from loin/kidneys aka leaf lard.
Can I find this anywhere for about the same price of butter? Any farmers market stand? Good pork stores?
Try Stinky's on Smith Street. I know the offer lard covered lamb chops and are pork connoisseurs.

In the fall you can get it from Ray at the GAP farmer's market. His lard is leaf lard and v. good. For now, I guess it's flying pigs.
Either way, it's more expensive than cheap butter but less expensive than very good butter. And it makes a great pie crust, esp when mixed with butter.
