Free Range Leaf Lard – Rendered
Free range organically farmed Poaka leaf lard rendered over a low heat and packed in reusable/recyclable glass jars.
We have taken our superb free range heritage breed leaf lard, gently rendered it down using low heat over several hours and packaged in recyclable glass jars. We have done all the hard work so it’s ready to use right from the jar. Our free range organically farmed Poaka leaf lard is virtually taste/flavour neutral, meaning you get the full body in you cooking from using quality leaf lard but not the strong pork/animal flavour form using inferior products.
Leaf lard is a great alternative to using seed or vegetable oils (canola, soy, sunflower oils etc) for cooking and makes a great replacement for butter in cooking. Leaf lard is perfect for roasting potatoes, vegetables, making the best pastry and any other cooking requiring butter or vegetable oils. Rendering over a low heat for several hours gives a beautiful snow white lard and keeps all the good healthy fats and qualities of leaf lard in perfect condition. We have two jar sizes 300 ml and 500 ml.
