Whipped Lard With Herbs

I’ve made this recipe twice in the last month – once for the Field Day we hosted at our farm in August and again this weekend for the Preservation Celebration at the Central Gardens of North Iowa. It’s pretty fabulous when smeared on some crusty sourdough bread. Another option is to make this recipe with half lard and half butter.
