I have 50 pound boxes of lard free.
If you have a use for it, it’s yours.
I plan on making soap with mine.
And for those of you wondering what you could do with your 50 free pounds of said lard (other than making soap), here’s a recipe for “Old-Fashioned Lard Buns”:
OLD-FASHIONED LARD BUNS:
- 1/8 lb. fresh cake yeast
- 2 1/2 c. cold water
- 1/2 tsp. salt
- 1 egg
- 1/2 c. warm water
- 1 c. sugar
- 1/3 c. warm lard
- Flour to stiffen
Dissolve yeast in warm water; set aside. Mix together cold water, sugar, salt, lard, and egg; beat well. Next add yeast and sifted flour to liquid mixture until stiff. Knead dough until elastic.
Let dough rise twice and beat down each time. Last time roll into bun size balls. Let rise last time and bake at 350 degrees for 20 minutes.
