Are you confused about how to cook with lard?  We're here to help.  We are sharing our old family recipes and showing you how to put lard into the new recipes.  Anything that calls for shortening, just add the rendered leaf fat instead.  If it calls for oil, you can melt the rendered leaf fat and use in instead.  (Just remember if you are baking and put hot oil into eggs, it will cook them!)  You can cook meats, veggies and eggs in lard!  Stay tuned, we will keep updating our recipes.  Feel free to share yours with us!
