Just try the pie crusts, he says. Then decide.

        And potato chips cooked in lard are the best! Gibble's still cooks them in lard--nibble with Gibble's!

        Funny, I just made a quiche with a half-lard half-butter crust. It's my usual crust, and it's fantastically flaky. I go through a fair amount of lard (I go through much more butter), and I'm completely unapologetic about it.
