Donna Asks

Q:  I have a tub of lard.  (fresh pork lard) Can I freeze it?
A:  Yes Donna you can freeze lard and it will keep for a very long time.  You can do it in several ways.
     1: Simply put it in a plastic container, put on the lid and freeze
     2: Melt it, while hot put in canning jars.  Put on lids and rings.     Let cool and put in freezer. 
     3: Put solid lard in foodsaver bags.  Put a paper towel in top of bag.  Seal and freeze. 
I would NEVER recommend canning lard.   Freezing is the only way I recommend.
