20221214 Homemade lard
I need some lard for baking. Instead of buying hydrogenated lard at the supermarket, I air fry strips of (lightly seasoned) pork fat @ 200°C x 13 minutes to render lard. Re-fry the strips @ 200°C until crispy and use them on soup noodles, fry rice, or eat them as is as a snack.
Porky fries Some say it goes well with beer!
Noodles with cracklins （🐷)油渣麵 - an authentic Hong Kong street food. I followed Jerry's recipe.
Also made a whole-spelt noodle version, but I forgot to add the cracklins to the broth!
A whole-durum noodle version. This time I made sure I didn't leave out the cracklins!
I could have lowered the frying temperature to make it more "snowy-white", but I think it's not bad for a first try.
