Lard is an animal fat typically made from pork. This fat is solid at room temperature and useful for frying foods or making pastry crust.
Stores, such as Wal-Mart, sell lard from a number of brands, including Armour, Morrell and La Preferida. The fat is packaged in plastic tubs up to 25 pounds. It can also be found in smaller 1-lb. packages similar to those used for butter.
Customers can also order lard online through websites like Amazon and Food Service Direct. The latter allows customers to purchase large quantities of lard in packages of 12, weighing up to 48 lbs.Learn more about Grocery
