Ingredients
  • 500g pork lard – skin removed
  • 1 tsp salt
  • Water
Instructions
  1. Cut pork lard into about 2-inch cubes. They will shrink further when cooked.
  2. Place lard cubes into a medium pot and add just enough water to cover the lard. Do not add too much or it’ll take a longer time to render the pork lard.
  3. Bring to boil over medium heat and cook uncover until most of the water has evaporated, approx. 30 to 40 mins.
  4. Add in salt and stir well.
  5. Cover and cook over medium low heat, stirring occasionally to prevent the lard from sticking together. It should take about 1 hour or more.
  6. Be careful of oil splatter.
  7. Drain pork lard onto a paper towel.
  8. Store fried pork lard in an air-tight container for up to 1 week.
  9. Keep pork lard oil in a glass container and store in the fridge for up to a month.
