Grind pork fat or chop into small pieces. Put into a large roasting pan and bake most of the day in a slow oven. Squash fat occasionally with a potato masher. Let it cool a bit. CAREFULLY strain through cheesecloth and then pour fat into jars. cover and store in a cool place or better yet in the icebox. Save the browned cracklings and use for flavoring as you would bacon.

Many of the recipes in this collection did not contain amounts or oven temperatures. I have typed them in as they appear in the book, typos and all.
