I started with a big bag of fat scraps from the market.

|18 hours 21 minutes|
There's not much left in the pot, just oil and browned bits of meat. The white bits that still look like fat are cartilage and aren't going to render out any more.

About 5 and a half pounds of fat trimmings left about 2 and a half pounds of tallow.

This is it cut and cured for a few weeks. This bar also has coconut oil, castor oil and and olive oil, in a goats milk base. The poppy seeds and lemon peel granules make it scrubby. It's a great soap for the kitchen.
