There was a lot of fat on the pigs when we were processing them at the weekend, so gets added to the sausages but there was still a lot there.
One of the guys was Polish and wanted to make smalec. This is basically like dripping but with pork fat instead of beef and the fat is flavoured.
It was simple to make. We first minced up a good amount of fat.
Stores for a long time as well as fat is basically a preserve.
Apparently they sometimes flavour the fat with apples instead of onions. I think I still prefer beef dripping but this is genuinely good to eat. The girls liked it as well!
Who else has tried this or something similar?
