Jensen Reserve Leaf Lard is rendered only from our high quality Meishan pork. It makes the softest, creamiest lard you can have. Pasture raised, it is thought to contain natural vitamin D, essential for your body's health. It also liquifies at body temperature. Lard is understood by many to have increased HDL cholesterol, which is linked to a lower risk of heart disease.
Lard is making a comeback. Recent studies have proven that cooking oils and certain hydrogenated vegetable oil products are much more unhealthy than this natural product that has been used for centuries.
Lard is rendered pork fat; the term is usually used to refer to rendered pork fat suitable for cooking.
Leaf lard specifically comes from the soft fat from around the kidneys and loin of the pig. It has a very soft, super spreadable consistency at room temperature.
Leaf lard is considered the highest grade of lard.
Great for many types of cooking, our Leaf Lard will make French fries, pastries, biscuits, pie crusts, and so much more, just like Grandma used to.
