Lard should be an essential part of your survival pantry. It can be useful for cooking, baking, frying, and preserving other food items. Lard can also be used as a cost-efficient alternative to margarine and cooking oil. Learn how to render lard for your SHTF stockpile by following this simple guide. (h/t to HomesteadSurvivalSite.com)
Lard is rendered pork fat that is often taken from the belly of a pig and has been strained of meat bits and other impurities. It is rich in calories and has incredible staying power. The key to rendering good lard is to first get superior quality pork fat. You can often find raw lard at ethnic grocery stores or you can buy back fat from most supermarkets. (Related: Why lard should be an essential part of your SHTF stockpile.)
You will need a few lard rendering tools before you can start rendering your own lard.
Ingredients and items needed:
Typically, lard stored in an airtight container can stay fresh for up to three months. If your lard has been properly canned and stored in a cool, dark place, it can keep fresh for up to five years. However, once you’ve opened a can, you should keep it refrigerated and consume it within a month. If you freeze your lard, you can extend its shelf life indefinitely.
