Indydebi I am concerned about you. I am really concerned that you are going through life thinking that lard leaves a bad aftertaste. I grew up in South Georgia with two grandmas who cooked everything in either lard or bacon grease because that was how you cooked. When I say everything, I mean everything. Lard was used for eggs and hash browns in the morning, grilled cheese at lunch, in the biscuits and to fry the fish or chicken for dinner.
Let me assure you that if you are doing it right lard will not leave any aftertaste. Except maybe the taste of love!
I kid, I kid. So the next time you drive through Nashville you're gonna need to come on over to my house so we can have some fried chicken and biscuits and rectify this situation.
