Don't ignore the Fat at your butcher!

Hey everyone it's Margo and I am busy with another project. The cold weather has convinced me to stay in doors for now, and to find something else to do, that I feel is productive - Tallow making! I think rendering beef fat is making a come back, and for good reason, because the nutritional benefits are off the charts. We live in a place that is surrounded by cattle farmers, who start and finish their beef on grass. Having a local butcher that can answer questions about "fat" like what is Suet? What is Tallow, and why has it been used for generations Is a gem within the community. There are some interesting reads online about the history of tallow making, the many uses for it and, how it was traded. Whether your ancestors are African, European or Asian, chances are high that they have all used Beef fat in one form or another- for light sources, soaps, waterproofing, healing salves, moisturizers, trading, and vitamin content. If you're wondering why we're interested in making and using tallow, when there are simpler ways to procure balms, salves, soaps and candles? Well, we believe that what is beneficial mentally and physically doesn't always come easy, it comes out of the journey. While preparing the kitchen for the task, we learned a lot about useful equipment, terminology, packaging, shelf life, camaraderie and memories. If you'd like to know what we're going to use it for, well you'll have to bookmark our store page and see what pops up.

Until next time, stay in the moment and enjoy the ride!
