Lard at Berkeley Bowl West

Does anyone know if they sell it there? If so, what department would it be in?

  1. don't know if it's at BBW, but I'm sure I've seen it just north at Mi Tierra on San Pablo near University.

    1. ooh...on second thought, I may have seen it in the refrigerated cases across from the butcher counter--where the lox and sausage are displayed.

      1. Not sure about BBW but I got some at Verbrugge on College. You can call in advance so they can chop it for you and have it ready.

          Lard isn't something you can chop. Not in English, anyway.

            This sounds like suet, not lard. Suet is the white solid fat from (preferably) around the kidney. Lard is made from melting fat.

        2. Yes, I see it there all the time, near the butter. It's the top left of the butter case.

            Thanks, that's exactly where it is, in a green box. Definitely very hardened and different from the lard I've seen in Mexican grocery stores.

              Sounds like Armour. Check the label to make sure it's not hydrogenated.

                Mi Tierra has the brown, rendered pork lard. Check butcher section

            2. you can find it all the way to the left when you walk in the store on a refrigerated shelf around where the eggs are.
