We just got a pig the other day, so now we have 12 POUNDS of lard. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/lol.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="lol"> It's frozen now, but can I just use it as it is to make hashbrowns in, for example? Or do I have to render it? Or is it already rendered? How can I tell?
