    Most homemakers don't even keep lard nowdays, whereas 30 years or so ago everyone used lard.

    I don't know where you reside mjh,(one of Marvin's peeves among but a few) but here in NM, Manteca (lard) still occupies a large portion of the cooking oils section of most markets. I don't use it much myself, but I have some out in the garage fridge.
    In the big scheme of things it's no worse than palm oil or coconut oil, or IMO products like country crock, that comes in huge tubs and everyone thinks is better than butter.
    If you've never had a bean,cheese,green chile and chiccarone (cracklin's for you crackers) burrito, wrapped in a homemade lard and flour tortilla after a chilly duck hunt, you have missed a culinary delight.

    Butter, lard, olive oil, a well-marbled steak!!

    What is a snow plow?

    Are they related to sand plovers?

    I think it's a maneuver while skiing to prevent you from killing yourself.

    I like to know where people are from as it will tell you a lot about them. I grew up in SD, been a lot of places for a while but mostly WA in my adulthood.

    I grew up organic, there were no sprays around, so know a fair amount about natural food. We butchered our own hogs, rendered the fat in a large cast iron cauldron, the cracklings were awesome! My job as a little guy was getting enough fuel to keep the cauldron hot. The lard was mostly used to make a lye based soap that was used to wash clothes & then poured on the garden plants to keep the bugs off.

    The only place I drew the line was head cheese, any body here ever had any? My Grandpa used to put a slice of it on his bread & eat it like candy!!!!!!!!!

    I sell dairy products for my son at Farmer's Markets so know a little about the idiocy that is taking place in government circles. It's a lot of fun to have them tell you something & when you tell them they don't know what they are talking about, they get defensive. The regulators don't even read the rules that they are telling us we need to follow!!!!!!!!!!! & they are wrong more often than not, but still in charge . That's the government I've had my fill of.

    BTW, if you think its the government that will have you eating substitute meat, check out www.beefproducts.com and see what private industry already has you eating! Click on the "process" and read until your gut aches.

    I knew there was a reason I keep so much 100% Venison burger in the fridge. Haven't bought any burger at the store in years. I'll have to share that link with the wife, just in case she ever has a problem with me spending so much time in a tree before duck season!!

    When we eat red meat it is always venison.
    Venison chili, venison spaghetti, venison helper and of course backstraps & steaks & roasts in the slo-cooker.
    We have salmon filets that we caught out of lake Michigan in the freezer.
    We have several pheasants for soup & dumplings.
    We make or own "pheasant tenders" as well.
    Think of all the Bovine hormones and Bhp and cortisone we are missing!!

    In regard to coconut butter, it is awesome to cook with.
    We only use olive oil or coconut oil for frying etc.

    My Grand Ma cooked with lard.
    The bakery was incredible.
    The difference is they made their own (I don't know how).
