Leaf lard in Montreal?

Hello Chowhound Community!

Does anyone know where I can buy leaf lard in Montreal or surrounding areas? It is for the purpose of pie making.

Much appreciated!

  1. Leaf Lard is "saindoux de panne", or just saindoux, or just "panne", depending on my sources (google :-) ).

    IMO, It should be available at most good butcher shop.

    (but I've never used it, so I never looked for it).

    1. Kate McDermott from the Art of the Pie recommends leaf lard. I am also wondering where you can you purchase it?

        I don't bake and Mrs Porker is a tenderflake woman...
        Can u make your own? I oftentimes see leaf lard in its raw form; can you melt it down?

          I also use tenderflake but am curious about the leaf lard.
