Rancid lard is good on my shovels and hand trowels and other garden stuff. sounds gross but keeps the metal from rusting over the winter in the shed.Britesea said:Thanks ~gd, that was very helpful. Now if I could just figure out a way to get rid of the triglycerides in the commercial lard I bought before I found out it was hydrogenated.... I guess I'll just use this stuff to make soap
I do not think I would use it to season any caste iron. I had to burn(low coals) my big fry pan as it spent the winter in the camper and just became too rank to use. haven't had that happen in a long time.
I wonder if the birds would eat it in the winter like they do beef suet and deer carcass.. Most birds that eat fats don't seem to mind gross stuff.
melt it and throw some meal worms in there and mold it in little squares you would have food for the birds all winter..
