My first time making lard yesterday but it was pretty simple. I put about a cup of water in my big crock pot then added some of the fat (this is not all the fat and I will probably be making more lard later).
It cooked for several hours. I then strained it through cloth into the jars.Cooked it some more, strained some more until the fat was completely cooked and no more grease could be obtained from it. I ended up with just a little more than 4 pints of the nicest, whitest lard.
