This is the chopped fat, before I got smart and got the grinder out. There's a lot of meat in here...
Grinding..and making a funny face. For some reason, when Dave takes pictures for me, he doesn't try again if I'm making a silly face.
It took muscle to feed it into the grinder!
The mandatory cut...actually, the bandaid covering the mandatory cut. Yes, my bandaid is too tight.
That's all the pictures I have so far. I've already gotten about 2 gallons of lard poured up, and I don't think I'm halfway through yet. Since there is so much meat in the fat, what is left after I melt the ground fat is almost like sausage, instead of little crispy yummy things (yes, I sorta eat them sometimes) like when I chop the fat. (better than chewing the fat!) I told Mama we should eat it like sausage but she has a psycological problem with that or some other such nonsense. I might just sneak it in something I make...I'm not going to waste it!
Time to go pour more lard off! This is so exciting!
