    I still remember my mother putting lard on her wood cook stove. Worked like a charm. I usually tried to make myself busy outdoors though when she did this.

    I know what it is. And have never put a piece of it in my mouth. And don't plan to.

    If you ever do, you may be sorry. Terrible stuff it is.

    Me too, and I would have used it on the disc that fills the top exit on the Hearthstone, but Olive oil works just as well for the finishing and smokes a lot less.

    You have to know how to cook it. Dredged in flour and cooked until it is brown then flip and do the same. Serve with maple syrup or Tabasco. YUM

    Never had it dredged in flour, though wheat triggers stomach problems for me anyway so I won't try that one... but Heinz ketchup for sure!

    I cooked up like 1/3 a big package of RAPA the other day and I'm pretty sure I tasted some of the oink in there. My wife definitely squealed in disgust as she can't stand the smell of it when cooking...

    Anyway now we're way off topic :D

    I find the noodles that have potato starch are better even if they also have rice flour

    Lard has ~1/2 the saturated fat as butter and no trans fat. No knocking the stuff here.

    But anyway...
