Whoopsie! These are jars with dings on labels with wrinkles and/or other cosmetic flaws. Also, there may have been production issues that may result in a product that is safe to enjoy but which doesn't meet our normal standards. That is the case with this batch of Pasture Raised Pork Lard. We have a new lot that was rendered a bit too long and has a slightly burnt taste.
The jars will need to be reset as they are separated as a result of the overcook. To do a reset simply put the jar on a cookie sheet or a skillet and place it in the oven, with the lid on, at 250F for 30-45 minutes. Remove the jar from the oven carefully and put it in the fridge overnight to set up. It will set nice and smooth without separation.
Pasture Raised Pork Lard
Our most flavorful lard-made from the back fat and belly fat of pasture-raised pigs. Lard is a robust fat that is great for everyday cooking. Use for browning meat, sautéing veggies, and baking both sweet and savory treats. Lard has a high smoke point of 370°F so it is also great for frying your favorite potatoes.
You probably know this by now, but it bears repeating: none of our products have added hormones or antibiotics and they are all pasture-raised by small family farmers. NOTE: You can filter our Pasture Raised Pork Lard for repeated use. Just drain through a coffee filter into a clean jar.
To appease the USDA and to keep oxidation low, our lards and poultry fats contain very small amounts of Organic Rosemary Extract. Rosemary is NOT a preservative but it does have natural antioxidant properties.
