Homemade Organic Lard and Cracklings

This is What You’ll Need:

  • pastured organic pork fat
  • 1/4 cup unchlorinated and unfluoridated water

Here’s How I do it:

  1. Cube the pork fat and save the big chunks of pork for something else,
  2. Place the water and fat cubes into a slow cooker; Heat on low for 6-10 hours (depending on the amount of pork fat and the temperature of your slow cooker), until the fat is completely rendered and the cracklings are crispy, stirring occasionally.
  3. Remove the cracklings from the lard and store in separate containers.
  4. Pour the lard into pint sized Mason jars and allow them to cool before refrigerating; Freeze after completely chilled in the freezer, if desired.
  5. I store extra lard and cracklings seperately in the freezer.
  6. Enjoy!
