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! icon_lol.gif 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.

Darby, as I've read thru this thread with all the comments by everyone, I seriously began thinking "was it the lard or was it that my mom was a horrible cook?" icon_lol.gificon_lol.gif Remember, I did preface my earlier post with "maybe it's just an early memory from being a kid ...."! icon_wink.gif

I think I may need to get around some REAL southern cooks! thumbs_up.gif

(But no grits! I don't eat things that look funny and those things look funny!)

Well Debi, I did not want to be the one tell you that it was your mother's cooking but now that you have come to that conclusion yourself I will have to agree. I just wasn't going to be the one to tell you! I'm far too polite for that.

Don't worry, I'll sneak grits into you and you won't even know it but you'll like 'em. No one can resist grits casserole if you put enough cheese and butter in it!

icon_lol.gif This is all in fun but was I the only one thinking that the reason you never had any bad aftertaste was that your tongue was permanently coated with a nice numbing layer of LARD!! icon_lol.gif

ah geez, you all have made me really hungry.. for something made with lard - bacon grease... I want something, but to darn lazy to get up and make anything.. (tough day delivering that 3 x 4 foot cake)

OT - can someone tell me how to make that sausage gravy... I love it. I was down south last year for 3 months, and just loved it. nobody sells it here in Canada.. or at least where I live.. would love it if someone gave me a recipe..

Lard for pie crust.. yummm
Bacon grease for frying up potatoes and eggs.. hmmm.. good

So back to the original subject, has anyone made buttercream with it yet? I've thought it about it but never took the time to try it.

lol am I the only one here that thinks food cooked in the fat drippings of other foods is a bit gross .... ok that was an understatement it actually makes me want to gag lol ... I honestly have never had anything cooked in lard and when I cook bacon (which I RARELY do unless it is turkey bacon) then I drain the drippings and wipe the pan clean before cooking anything else. I have a hard enough time making BC with veg shortening the whole hydrogenated oils make me want to kill over thinking of them clogging my arteries but these are for others and not myself lol, I am actualy considering making frosting for my next cake out of tofu, I have found some recipes that sounds really good

I have a slight thyroid problem and am not supposed to eat anything with soybeans. Sorry no tofu for me. Coconut oil and lard are on my list of things I can have. I just have to eat plenty of fruits to clean the ole arteries.

I would still like to hear an answer to the question about what hi-ratio shortening is made from. Does anyone have a container handy to read the ingredient list?
