Rendering Lard: Part Two (Take Two)

Thank goodness I had nine pounds of lard left.

I started the process again with another pot and a slightly higher temperature. I also made sure to stop the process sooner, when the cracklings were perhaps a bit too plump but the lard still smelled crisp and good.

The end result should pay off.

The cracklings are still a but plump.

The lard looks nice and clear. The true test will come tomorrow after the lard cools in its jars.
