Dry Rendering Tallow & Lard
Suet, the hard, white fat that surrounds the internal organs will produce the hardest, whitest tallow for soap making.
Check your suet/tallow ever 20-30 minutes. Scoop out your oil into a heat-safe container. I like using wide mouth canning jars.
When filtering your rendered oil into the container, you may have to wait if you are using a tightly woven material. Pictured are coffee filters. I have two jars being filled to help speed the process.
To speed up the rendering process, I use an old potato masher to pulverize the suet.
You can also use a plain paper towel as a strainer.
This is what is left of the suet, cracklings. I could render this a bit further. Instead, I use a potato ricer to squeeze out the extra oil from the cracklings.
Jars of tallow
The tallow is finished.
