What's delicious, all-natural, and a whole lot better for you than you ever believed? LARD. That's right, you heard us. This week we're giving ten readers each a signed copy of LARD: The Lost Art of Cooking with Your Gradmother's Secret Ingredient by Oscar W. Hill III and the editors of GRIT magazine. Winners also receive a subscription to GRIT, celebrating rural America since 1882, and 1 lb of pure leaf lard from fourth-generation family-owned Prairie Pride Farm in Mankato, MN.
A number of us grew up being told that lard was bad for us. Guess what? It turns out that pure, unprocessed lard contains less saturated fat than butter and many vegetable oils. It also has a very smoke point, and it tastes delicious to boot, making it the perfect secret ingredient for recipes like:
- Fried Okra
- Green Tomato Pie
- Country Fried Chicken
- June Cleaver's Cookies
- Spiced Cake Doughnuts
