Good for your skin

Lard can be a controversial

ingredient in soap making. Some are concerned that animal fat will make their soap greasy and clog pores. Actually, it is quite the contrary. Lard resembles the structure of human skin cells which is composed of saturated fats. Lard soap is closer to our skin than plant-based soaps.

Pork Cuts: A Visual Guide

Before you shop for pork, it’s helpful to understand some basic information as well as the primal cuts from which the retail cuts are butchered.
