When I did my first Whole30 I stayed far away from canola and other vegetable oils. Now I can actually taste when a product – like kettle cooked potato chips – is fried in “the bad stuff.” It’s so prominent that it overtakes the taste of the actual food and makes me a little queasy.
The first thing I noticed about Fatworks Leaf Lard is that it’s mild flavor doesn’t saturate the food, it enhances it. Real fats either taste better or don’t have a taste at all.
This company makes premium fats that fit right in with Paleo lifestyles. All products are made with the highest quality, pasture raised animals and without artificial trans fats or fillers. They were designed for gourmet cooks, bakers, and the like, but (fortunately) are available for all to purchase.
Fatworks’ fats are also completely safe and even recommended for pets – just mix a tablespoon or two right into their food. Some parents have noticed shinier coats on their fur babies.
This is the highest grade of all lards and comes from the soft fat around the kidneys of 100% pasture raised pigs. It is perfect for frying, sautéing, and baking – a favorite of bakers (and me!).
You can sub leaf lard for butter in baked goods, fry up some pretty yummy hash browns, sauté veggies, add some flavor to your meat, and so much more. Some even like to add a spoonful to their coffee – I haven’t tried it yet, but it’s on my list.
Try all 8 Fats
If you’re unsure which fat to buy or you want to try them all, Fatworks sells 1oz sample jars of their 8 fats for just $3 each. The sample jars would also make great additions to food gift baskets.
