Welcome to the interactive Louisville Restaurants Forum, a civil place for the intelligent discussion of the local restaurant scene and just about any other topic related to food and drink in and around Louisville.
Pi day approaches quickly, and I realized I have no idea where to get leaf lard in Louisville for pie crust. Or good local rendered lard. In my pie crust I use a mix of lard and butter and the hydrogenated stuff at the grocery store is no better than using shortening, in my opinion. Any ideas? haven't had a chance yet to go to all of the butchers from the other thread to check them out.
Jim Fiedler (Fiedler Family Farms) sells all natural lard and leaf lard. He is at the BRFM location Thursdays 4 - 6 pm. Email him today (tues) for pickup on Thursday... firstname.lastname@example.org It keeps forever in the fridge...
Heading out early tomorrow to hunt- Thanks y'all. You are saving a very important holiday! Pi Day( March 14 or 3.14 ) is a big deal in this house. Nerdiness. Pie. What else could you want? Except more pie, of course.
We use Tropical traditions non-hydrogenated organic palm shortening. We get it online, but if we ever run out we pick up spectrum brand of the same product (available at most krogers in the health food section for $6.19) I like tropical traditions better though.
