It’s the lard that makes it good

Isn’t that supposed to be true? Like the best pie crusts being so good because they’re made with lard? And the best refried beans? I say it all the time, though to be honest I’ve almost never had anything made with lard. I don’t really go for pie as a rule, and I find vegetarian refried beans totally satisfying (I’ve been known to eat a can of refritos for lunch, just me, the can, a spoon, and that’s it). Still, something about lard speaks to me. Maybe cuz it’s like the forbidden fruit or something. Anyhow, I noticed a link on 802 Online [1] to a blog post by Jericho Settler’s Farm [2] on making lard, and I just had to share.
