I bought some lard last July at a local store known for local produce and meats. I put it in the freezer and I pulled it out two months ago and put it near the back of my fridge. I want to make pie crust today but not sure if lard is too old. Also I noticed that this lard is labeled Manteca, I thought it was from the local farm associated with the store apparently I was mistaken. Is Manteca lard a good brand for pie crust? Thanks!!
