Very expensive and time consuming to make, but very special!
Specially made and handcrafted by April, who makes my bone broth to sell from a commercial kitchen. This listing is for the larger jar of grass fed beef tallow. 8 oz. Here is a bit of information below about Tallow, but you can google it for more informations and uses for Tallow. Coming soon is our lamb tallow
When you think of glowing skin or disease prevention, melted animal fat is probably not the first thing that comes to mind. However, tallow is a saturated fat you’ll want to keep stocked in your pantry for its numerous benefits and countless uses.
Many refer to tallow as an ‘old fashioned fat’ because historically, it was the primary fat used for cooking and frying thanks to its unusually high smoke point. However, tallow was replaced with refined vegetable oils (such as canola), when some studies claimed that saturated fats cause heart disease. (Spoiler alert: many would argue there’s still no scientific evidence that saturated fat causes heart disease)(1).
What is Tallow?
As a saturated animal fat, tallow almost looks like a hybrid of coconut oil and butter, but with a dry, waxy texture. It’s generally made from cattle fat, but can come from any animal, except pork — pork tallow is called lard. So, tallow is basically cow lard.
Beef tallow is: 50% saturated fat, 42% monounsaturated fat and 4% polyunsaturated fat.
Tallow is made from rendering suet, which is the hard, white fatty layer that surrounds an animal’s organs, specifically the loins and kidneys.
