Leaf lard is the highest grade of lard. All lard is rendered pork fat - the term is usually used to refer to rendered pork fat suitable for cooking. Leaf lard specifically comes from the visceral, or soft, fat from around the kidneys and loin of the pig. As such, it has a very soft, super spreadable consistency at room temperature. <br> <br> Also, while leaf lard doesn't have the porky flavor of caul fat, it does have a gentle back-note of subtle, gentle meatiness that hydrogenated lard lacks. So it's a good choice when you want that high smoking point, but you don't want the final product to taste like pork.<br><br> Due to its natural moisture content and mild flavor, leaf lard is particularly prized by bakers for use in producing flavorful and flaky pie crusts. <br><br> True lard-ophiles may even choose to spread leaf lard on bread. Add a sprinkle of salt and you'll see why it's common practice in some regions of the world.
