We are on week one of no soy, wheat, dairy, or eggs.  Ugh.

 

Anyhow, as I went to grab my crisco to quickly season my cast iron, I stopped and...  SOY!  AHHH!  What do I do?  I use lard, right?  I know lard is the preference, but I can't say I'm thrilled about the idea.  Anyone use something other than lard?

We use spectrum shortening, it's just palm oil and has a consistency like crisco :) Works great!
