I remember we had a thread on leaf lard some time ago but I don't think my question was addressed then.
In cleaning out my big freezer I found I have a stockpile of leaf lard (I have to order from PA so it makes sense to buy in quantity to justify the shipping charge).
Anyway, since I don't make pies very often I'm wondering what are other uses for the leaf lard. Would it be a good substitute for bacon grease? Can you suggest other ways I could make use of it?

Use it to increase the fat percentage of home-gound beef. I add it to lean beef brisket.

It pains me to think of leaf lard as being "wasted" and used like common lard. 😁 Leaf lard is sooo much harder to come by.

It can be used to fry sweet things like doughnuts. It should have good re-usability in the fryer. You can also use it in cookies. I'm thinking something like Joe Froggers, which are traditionally made with lard. Pretty much any cookie that calls for shortening can use leaf lard, I think.
