Rendering Tallow

Tallow. Its a lesser known part of the cow that gets overlooked. It is the fat from the animal. Rendered down, it is a fabulous moisturizer and cooking oil. We make a whipped body butter made with tallow. SInce tallow is similar in composition to our own skin, it makes a great moisturizer.

Directions:

Step 1: Secure a bunch of beef fat. Some stores will sell it at the meat counter, but you have to ask for it.

Step 2: Cut off as much extra meat as possible. Your goal is to have as little red or pink as possible.

Step 3: Cut the fat into manageable chunks and then grind them in the food processor. This makes it easier to render down.

Step 4: Place your ground fat into a crockpot on low. Let it simmer....good things come to those who wait.

Step 5: When the fat is all melted and the little cracklings are browned it is ready.

Step 6: Strain the liquid fat through some cheesecloth. Some people refrigerate it and others leave it at room temperature. It turns from a beautiful yellow liquid to creamy white.

Step 7: When your tallow is all cool, it is ready to be used. We keep ours in the refrigerator, but many people leave it out. Its a persona preference.
