Homemade Lard


  • 3 lbs Pork Fat Trimmings
  • 1 Apple Peel
  • 1 tbsp Salt


  • Cut the pork fat into small cubes.
  • Soak in cold water for one hour. This will release any blood that remains in the meat.
  • Place the pork fat into a large pot and cook on medium high heat until the fat has rendered, and the pieces of meat are crunchy and fried – About 45 mins.
  • Strain the fat with a mesh strainer and add the lard to a glass jar. The pork meat that remains can be eaten or used in recipes.
