#15784: I think proper leaf lard (rendered from the fat around the kidneys in the abdominal cavity) is

very difficult to find now - I've never seen it here. The home rendered lard I find is in latin grocery stores and it is from the fat cut from under the skin. They also let theirs brown a tad. It does taste porky. Makes divine refried beans or tamales but I would definitely taste it in pastry.
