I have 9 pounds of leaf lard, its refrigerated at the moment but am afraid it won't keep for an extended period of time. Can it be frozen? Will it stay fresh and will freezing alter it in any way?

I always keep my leaf lard in the freezer. It stores well as long as you wrap it tightly in plastic and/or foil so it doesn't pick up any other flavors.
Thanks Heritagecook, the lard came in 1 lb plastic containers and each container is sealed in plastic so it should be safe. Thanks I would be upset if all that lard went bad.
We can all be a little braver in the kitchen.
