Pork Kidney (Leaf) Fat

Pork kidney fat, commonly known as leaf fat, comes from the kidney area and surrounds the abdominal cavity. The same type of fat on beef would be called suet. It's a clean, high quality soft fat, perfect for rendering into delicious pork lard which can be used for a number of things. Rendering pork lard at home is incredibly simple as outlined in this how-to guide. Once rendered, it can be used for cooking, frying, baking, and even skincare products, soap, and candles. Our raw pork kidney fat comes pre-ground to make rendering or cooking with it very easy and efficient.
