Its that season. The canning is done and winter feed and cord wood put up. Woodstove is running. Its time to pull my hog fat out of the freezer for slow rendering on the woodstove. I like to keep the initial for our use. I take the belly fat and later rendering of the other fat and make my spoiled chickens blocks of lard with seeds n cracked corn,(suiet) for warmth for the colder months of winter. I have lots of fuzzy frizzles and their feathers are not very functional...lol If you never rendered your animal fat, your missing out! beans and lard are soo delicious!!! Not the hydrogenated lard from the store. I store my lard and their homemade suiets in the freezer. But I have been thinking, is there another way to store lard for long term storage if you didnt have a freezer? I'm thinking maybe for prepping purposes in the event of no electricity.
