I've been getting mine from the local Mexican market. I get a deli quart-sized container of freshly rendered lard for under $3. The other night I made Greek Coney sauce with lard. OMG was it great! Nice smokey flavor, creamy texture. I use it for tamales, and tonight was biscuits and gravy. My venison sausage is super lean, so I fried it in lard, threw in the flour, milk and black pepper. My family freaked. Sometimes I fry our fresh eggs in a bit of lard in a non-stick pan. It doesn't get any better! Anybody else lovin the lard?
