I decided to render the fat in my oven. I set the oven to 350. At an hour and a half I drained about 1 an a half quarts, I then cooked it for another 45 minutes and got another ½ quart. The fat was getting a little brown so I decided not to put it back in.
This was my final result
The tallow was a golden yellow. It almost looked like apple juice. The crispy fat was brown. I guess I can mix it with ground or chopped meat.
I actually finished just as (DW) stepped into the house. As I guessed she almost fainted at the thought that I would consume any of this. My blood screen test this December will hopefully show some good results or I will never hear the end of it. She means well, but I’m preacher to the choir.
I am going to put my faith of (ZC) to the test and eat my tallow and crispy fat. In the past (even on VLC) I never would have entertained eating tallow.
