Fun with Lard

Jeters | Jun 23, 2008 10:11 AM

Sooo on a whim this weekend I bought a nice big hunk of leaf lard from the Wooly Pig stand in the farmers market, and thought it would be a fun experiment to render down some lard for use in...well, there lies the problem.

I now have a freezer full of neat little sticks of lard, and a fridge full of cracklins. Unfortunately, I really didn't think too far past that. Anyone have good ideas for a bunch of lard? Other than making pie crust (although im sure I will make a few, I don't really need that much pie in my life)

I know its often used in mexican food, but it looks like most recipes on the internet ive come across have been gringo-ized and don't call for it.

bad comes to worse, I can save it for thanksgiving..
