My house is about 8 houses down (1/2 way) on the right. A large telephone pole marks the top of my driveway. Tan house w/ black trim and red doors; the house sets down off the road. Feel free to park in the driveway, OK to park on the right side of the driveway a little ways onto the grass.”

About This Event:
This is a BYOJ party (Bring Your Own Jars).

I first proposed the idea of the “Community Food Preparation Event ” in the August ’09 Newsletter. Teri Sue has volunteered her home, and a whole bunch of fat for this event.

I don’t know if a “Fat Rendering Party” is a traditional event, but it sounds like something you would be more likely to hear about happening in pioneer days than in modern America. This is not a class so much as a get-together and an opportunity to prepare food in the company of other like-minded people. Experience hands-on participation and discussion about rendering beef, lamb and pork fat into useful lard and tallow.

Children and Guests are Welcome:
This is a child-friendly home. Teri Sue has toys and DVDs for young children.
