Great alternative to beef and lamb fat when you need to switch it up. I also loved that they kept the skin on, super crunchy like chicharrones when you pan sear.
This fat is delish! Very rich & you can really taste the nutty flavor of the acorns these pigs feed on. Best of all, it doesn't totally render away into liquid. You can actually slice it up, brown it in a pan over med. heat & eat the fat slices if the meat you're eating is too lean. I know this is higher in Omega 6 that grassfed beef fat would be, but since it's pretty much the only high Omega 6 food in my diet, I'm fine with that.
I bought this for my mom who was raised on a farm and she said it was the best pork fat she’s ever had! Me and her are now both using it for cooking and pork rinds. Would definitely buy again.
Thawed it and cut it up into 1 lb slabs. I hope refreezing is ok. Took some out and fried low temp like bacon and ate it hot and cold as a snack fat add on to lean meat.
