Searching for Leaf Lard in East Bay

phlosar | Nov 23, 2009 03:18 PM

I am trying to find leaf lard for holiday pie crusts. I have inquired at Ver Brugge, Lunardi's, Berkeley Bowl (and Whole Foods/Andronico's since I was in those stores). The boyfriend found some lard at a Mexican supermarket, but it is slightly yellow and has a bit of a pork odor. I am concerned about using that for an apple pie. I would prefer to avoid SF. I am in San Leandro and San Ramon for the most part and will travel East Bay for leaf lard.

On a related note, Lunardi's has decent suet (Christmas pudding) in case anyone is wondering.
