I need the calories but I am sensitive to some of the more tastier fats, like coconut, avocado, and nuts. Is there a way I could sneak in more tallow in a tastier connotation? Maybe a sauce or something, where I can't taste it directly?

So I tend to make lots of beef tallow for calories. But I'm too lazy to chop off all of the bits of meat or bloody parts mixed into the fat before rendering. Is that alright as long as I use a cheesecloth later? My concern is that the fat is... (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)

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.

Beef tallow is extremely saturated, so it is extremely resistant to heat. I would say that under those temperatures, there's no oxidation or production of carcinogens. The smoke point of beef tallow is between 375??F-400??F

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)

I love tallow, to me lard always tastes porky (maybe I rendered it wrong). It's pretty hard to find completely pastured lard that isn't fed any grains, so any pork fat you're going to find is going to have a higher omega-6 to omega-3 ratio. It... (more)

Besides US Wellness Meats, who seems to be out of tallow for the time being, are there any reputable sources for tallow. I simply don't have the time to render my own. Do you think I could ask a Whole Foods butcher?

Yeah, ditto above- find a local grass-based farm and you should be able to get the fat for dirt cheap (no one else wants it). You can render it yourself in a crock pot, it takes little hands-on time.
