Where in CA are you located? Depending on your proximity to me I could give you some ideas on where to go. Also you could always find some suet and render your own if you have a crock pot

Not much in terms of vitamins and minerals, but plenty of energy and flavor. If you want nutrients then the best cuts are the organs and glands and then after that are the muscles. Fat tissue (except for brains which are both fatty and... (more)

MasterVycen, I agree with you that you should eat organic beef tallow, but you also need to eat grass-fed beef tallow if possible. Grain fed beef tallow is extremely high in omega 6 fatty acid, and puts a heavy strain on your heart in the long... (more)

Rendering fat will remove a good amount of non-fat particles, reducing chances for spoilage (and pure fat tends to inhibit spoilage as well). What sort of fat are you freezing? Something that you've already cooked? I've definitely had suet in the... (more)

If it doesn't look too offensive, smells & tastes good, I'd probably give it a go. That being said I made my own recently; refilled with a little water, got back to it when it dissolved and drank it as soup :)

Lard is great in soap, lbut eftover fats from cooking is NOT. Also, different oils have different saponification values, so calculating it all will be PIA.

Not rendered means it is fresh off the cow in its natural state. Rendered means it has been cooked down and recooled into a butterlike state as lard is. Most butchers will have a bin of unrendered fat chunks.

Maybe I'm misreading your question, but you also get cracklings when you render beef into tallow. I think if you've left it in heat long enough, there shouldn't be much fat left in the cracklings. I believe they are mostly protein and minerals. ... (more)
