Amazing@! I had NO idea how bacon is made. Remember, I am a city girl. My bacon comes from the supermarket.
And cracklins? Is that deep fried skin and fat? Probably really bad for you and really good for you, too! (tastes good, no?)
What do you use the lard for? I tried making an apple pie last summer and used lard instead of butter and shortening, but it didnt' taste good at all.
I guess it's an aquired taste.
Thanks for this fun thread!
We use the lard for biscuits. Best biscuits I've ever had are lard drop biscuits (cat heads). Yeah ya use it in place of shortening.
Thanks for commenting. I sure ain't a writer.
