While family farms aren't as numerous as they once were, many Americans either grew up on a farm or remember visiting a grandparent's farm. A farm offers something magical for young and old alike. Whether you love the animals, wild flowers, wild blackberries, a sense of freedom, or the intoxicating aromas that waft out of grandma's kitchen, there is plenty on a farm to appreciate. As the quote above expresses, smells are a powerful reminder of experiences. You might remember gathering with family and friends over a holiday meal or running barefoot through the tall grasses. Our senses truly bring back some wonderful memories.
These cherished memories are a good reason to pass along family recipes from one generation to the next. It's nearly impossible to recreate the flavors from a family favorite without some guidance from a recipe. One kitchen secret grandma had up her sleeve was the use of lard, real butter, tallow and other all-natural cooking fats. These were vital to creating the smells and flavors we remember so fondly. Fortunately, chefs, cooks, and food lovers all over the world are rediscovering the value of these versatile cooking fats. Not only do they enhance the flavor profile of foods, they are stable at higher temperatures, and include important nutrients. Those vegetable oils that have become so common in American kitchens may not be as healthy as once believed.

Product Feature | A Home Cook's Guide To Bacon Fat
Simply put, bacon grease or fat is the fat that comes off or is “rendered” when you cook bacon. It makes an excellent alternative to butter for almost any recipe. It's extremely flexible and can be used in pie crusts, sauces, grilled sandwiches, etc. We've packaged our rendered bacon fat for you to try at home. As always, our uncured bacon fat is from heirloom breeds, and contains no nitrates or nitrites and is all-natural. It has not been bleached, deodorized, hydrogenated, or altered.
