I found this recipe (I think from someone who posts on here actually) I have a lot of home rendered tallow and was hoping to use it for soap, but I've never done it before. I'm looking for as simple as possible. I read about using a stick blender, which I have, but then not to use it for the first time, so I'm confused on what's the best course. So, opinions can I use a stick blender for the first batch or not? Also, I'm not a fan of the smell of tallow but I'm wondering if the smell is very strong when it is made into soap? How do most measure the tallow? Of course before heating it is solid but it is hard to measure hot.
