Pasture Raised Grass Fed Lamb Tallow 8oz: If you don't know about Lamb Tallow keep reading as this is one baa-d tallow. Some people find that lamb, in general, has a flavor that many in the west find a bit bit overpowering. But when it comes to the tallow itself, there is very little "gaminess" and it is in fact a traditional fat with a very subtle, mild (and did we mention, delicious) flavor, making it ideal for sauteing your favorite leafy greens, roasting vegetables and pan frying any and all meat. Lamb Tallow adds a piquant depth to soups and stews and of course, let us never forget the amazing and spudtacular things tallow can do to a potato! In fact, any root veggie will roast or fry beautifully with Lamb Tallow. It would be easy to go the "meat and potatoes" route, however, if you are up for a little culinary adventure we suggest baking with Lamb Tallow, only because it makes for some of the most delicious, savory pies! And we didn't even mention the whole new world of Middle Eastern cuisine that is just a jar away with Lamb Tallow. (This beloved tallow is even used as a secret ingredient in traditional baklava recipes.) Ok, we could go on and on but we done introduced it enough. Have at it!
Chicken Fat 8oz: Nothing really compares to Schmaltz. It has the richness of duck fat but with a milder and more aromatic flavor. Schmaltz adds complexity to a variety of dishes that you simply cannot reproduce any other way. Schmaltz is a joy to cook with and is the easiest way to add depth and complexity to leafy vegetables, stir fries, pan fried steaks, fish, poultry, soups, stews, baked goods, and for a special treat spread it right on a piece of bread like you would a high quality butter or fine olive oil. It's no exaggeration to say Schmaltz gives potatoes and other root vegetables a flavor that is beyond anything most of us have experienced. If potatoes could talk to schmaltz they would say, "You complete me!" Fatworks Chicken Schmaltz is made with 100% Organic Free Range Chicken (which ain't easy to find!) and is rendered with the typical care and passion that you would expect from Fatworks.
Cage Free Duck Fat 8oz: The best way to add a little Ohh-La-La to your cooking is to cook with Duck Fat. Just mention "Duck Fat fries" and people lose their minds. Besides fries duck fat is great for confit style dishes, roasted veggies, and savory pies. You can even spread it on a "quacker" with a little sea salt. We source specially bred ducks that are raised to forage on land rather than water, raised with room to roam, socialize, run around, preen their feathers and be just about as ducky as any duck could wish. It should be noted that almost ALL ducks raised in the U.S. are cage free and are by law hormone and antibiotic free. What separates our cage free duck fat from our competitors is our small batch, kettle rendering and our advanced fine-filtering system creating the purest, BEST TASTING cage free duck fat on the market!
Pasture Raised Leaf Lard 14oz: This is quite possibly the finest lard available. It is rendered from the prized pasture raised "leaf" (internal fat) making it less "porky" tasting than regular lard. There is no meat muscle in the leaf and hence a milder pork flavor. This makes an amazing lard that is delicate, light and "clean" tasting. Bakers have cherished Leaf Lard because it creates the best crusts and cakes while not imparting any flavor of its own. And because of its high smoke point, Leaf Lard is simply perfect for frying and sautéing, especially when you want the natural flavors of your ingredients to shine. Fatworks Pure Premium Pastured Raised Leaf Lard is essential for anyone interested in cooking with traditional fat. Take a bite of what you make with it and you'll soon be Praising the Lard.
Grass Fed Buffalo Tallow 8oz: This is the so called Thunderfat because it is sourced from the great American Bison, a.k.a. Thunderbeast! Fatworks sources from Organic and Grass-Fed Buffalo and rendered the Fatworks way! Buffalo Tallow has been a part of the diet of Native American tribes for generations and now we are bringing this revered fat to you! If you are trying to get the benefits of traditional beef tallow but just can't "get into" the taste, our buffalo tallow may be just what you need. Fatworks Organic Buffalo Tallow is a more "neutral" tasting fat. This rich, deep yellow fat is incredible for sautéing, frying and baking pies that are flaking awesome! Buffalo Tallow is also great for stir-fries, stews and sautéed dishes. Please note: Buffalo tallow is unlimited in awesomeness but limited in supply. Quote of the Day: "Organic Buffalo Tallow baking equals pies that are light and flaky and don't make your pies taste like buffalo whatsoever." -Anonymous (because who would take credit for that?) Also, for DIY lotion makers, if you mix Buffalo Tallow with essential oils you've got yourself a powerful emollient. (That's fancy talk for "moisturizer".)
