Tallow is useful for just about everything from frying veggies to using as a lotion on your skin. I don’t think you can find a better tasting homemade french fry than one that was fried in fresh tallow.
The good thing is…tallow is super easy to make. Messy, yes, but very easy. The bad thing is that decent suet can be hard to find. If you are searching for some, be sure and ask your local butcher first, many families may not get back their suet when they butcher a cow.
All you need to render tallow is a slow cooker, a bit of water, and your suet. You will also need a strainer and some freezer containers to clean and store the finished product.
