CrockPot with adjustable heat
Fine mesh strainer
Glass measuring cup
Container for storing lard
(depends on amount of fat)
Cut fat into small cubes, or grind into a pulpy mixture.
Put lard into room temperature CrockPot.
Stir in water.
Turn CrockPot on high. Allow to heat until starting to bubble, stirring often.
Continue stirring carefully. (Watch for splatters!)
Place fine mesh strainer lined wiht a coffee filter over a heat-proof glass measuring cup.
Strain hot lard through filter.
Cool at room temp, then store in fridge for up to a week, or store in the freezer for longer term storage.
From my understanding, the hotter and longer you cook the lard, the stronger it will taste and smell. I’ve personally experienced this.
