Using Overrendered Lard

by Sarah
(Two Rivers, WI, USA)

I am very new at soapmaking and rendered my own lard to use in my soap. I overrendered it letting the temperature reach 300 degrees F (it is only supposed to reach 255 degrees F).


It has a darker appearance and smells a bit like burnt bacon. I use my soap to make laundry detergent currently.

Would I be able to use this in my soap pure or mixed with good white lard or should i just throw it away?

Answer:

If the lard smells like burnt bacon then it will likely smell like that in the finished soap. I'm guessing you probably don't want bacon smelling laundry.

To be honest, I would throw it away. I don't know what the final result would be like if you used it and I would hate to see you throw out good lard to try and save some that is bad.
