Our pork lard is made from the highest quality fat and is extremely versatile when used for cooking. Unlike some oils, pork lard doesn't smoke on high temperature making it perfect for frying, roasting and even baking flakey pastries. Having received a Great Taste Star Award, here's what the judges had to say: "A beautiful creamy colour and texture. The aroma is characterful but markedly clean. The aroma carries through on the palate - the flavour is gentle and clean; quite mild. Both at room temperature and melted the gentle flavour is very appealing and we did find the clean finish a happy one, ensuring the versatility of this product for pastry sweet as we as savoury."

In years past, I was given organic pork fat in which I rendered it into lard myself - I grew to love using it in all my food endeavours. Alas, I can no longer get the fat so imagine how was super thrilled I was when I accidentally stumbled on James Whelan\'s online shop and found IRISH LARD! The product is brilliant, the flip-top-lidded container is a nice touch and makes it easy to use the lard. I\'ll be ordering more when this \"gold\" is gone! Thank you!
