Halal (and, I presume, kosher) Pork Fat

leave a comment »

Well, really it’s “pork” fat: a restructured vegetable fat and water combination that has the consistency and many of the properties of pork fat (which is highly valued in cooking—for example, the best pie crusts use lard, which today is—alas—high in trans fats since it’s hydrogenated so it can sit on grocery-store shelves and not spoil—though you can find pure, unhydrogenated pork fat if you look (the best is the leaf fat around the kidneys)).

Man, glad to escape that sentence. Anyway, here’s the article.
