How do you render lard from back fat?

  1. Start out with cold fat.
  2. Cut off the big chunks of meat or kidney remaining in the fat, then chop into small pieces, or run it through your food processor or meat grinder.
  3. Place 1/4 cup water and the ground fat in a slow cooker and set on low.
  4. Allow the fat to render for several hours, stirring frequently.
