    I did purchase it rendered once from Fresh From the Farm (www.freshfromthefarm.ca), so you could contact them to see if they have it. Most recently, I purchased lard from Cumbrae's, but it definitely wasn't rendered. You could call them, though, to see if they had a rendered option....

      Oh gosh, I was away for a few days, but my error was stewing in my mind all the while. It was not lard I purchased but suet. Sorry!!! Hope I didn't misdirect you.

      I've seen multiple large (like around 1L) tubs of lard at the No Frills at Dundas W and Lansdowne. They seemed to have regular and some kind of red, spiced variety.

          I agree that Lard is the way to go - makes my fried chicken lighter/crispier - I bought mine at Cumbrae's - it was Berkshire Pork Lard....

            Does anyone have experience with Maple Leaf lard, in the 1 lb $3 bricks?
            It is non hydrogenated and sold at room temperature.
            I used it for pan fried chicken and chips, and it was fine.
            No piggy odor, like home rendered lard. I guess they filter it.

              Mexican stores tend to carry tubs of rendered lard for a very good price (Perola's in Kensington, for example). I've also bought it at Healthy Butcher and at Wychwood Barns market.
