My daughter and I were in a “high end” grocery store last weekend and one of the items on our list was lard. We searched high and low for it and could not find it.
She asked an employee of the meat department about it and he told her that the USDA classified lard as “inedible” and we’d be unable to find it anywhere.
I thought to myself, surely someone on the ketogenic forums would have reported if the USDA had made such a classification… and I hadn’t read anything like that here.
We went to the “lower end” grocery store on our way home and checked in their Hispanic section and not only did we find it there, but they had a LOT of it. I bought two 3lb pails of it. I may have even convinced the cashier to start using it when I told her it was better than Crisco!
If you don’t carry something, just say so. Don’t lie to me about it.
