I am totally perplexed, having just moved to the US, that I can't find lard or tallow anywhere. And yet people write about using it for cooking. So where do you buy your lard or tallow (unhydrogenated)--and how much does it cost (I find that... (more)

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

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)

If you make it with the wet method, the bloody parts and the fat will separate naturally when cooling.

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 :)

I doubt that those reactions happen in any significant amount at temperatures well below the smoke point. This is true for sat, mostly true for mono, and probably not true for PUFA. use tallow, and cook those marrow bones no more than 15 minutes. (more)

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.
