Food Find of the Day
When Mavis went to the farmers' market today, I had him ask our friendly pork dude about leaf lard or leaf fat, thinking he would make himself a note and bring some for me next week. Instead, he reached back and pulled out a 17-lb box containing the leaf fat of 25 hogs, for which he charged us 20 bucks. Oh me oh my. I'll still need to render it, but I think my holiday pie-making needs will be fully met and then some.
