Happy Wednesday! Today is a homesteading day. We just got a whole cow in the freezer that we share among several families each year. The cow comes with bones. The bones become stock. And we end up with beef tallow.

The other day, someone asked me if beef tallow can be eaten, so I thought why now do a show sharing five recipe ideas for beef tallow. We will cover that, as well as what the heck tallow even is later in the show.

    Hey there, two things you didnt mention that we love to do with our beef tallow.
    Stovetop popcorn, make sure it’s very pure fat by boiling off any water before you add kernels and ideally it was strained pretty well when it was separated.
    Homemade tortillas, the ratio is very similar to biscuits roughly 1 cup masa corn flour, a tablespoon of tallow and some salt to taste. Press with a tortilla press(a pair of corelle dinner plates is a good substitute) or roll out with a rolling pin between 2 sheets of parchment paper then fry in a skillet till lightly spotted or spread on a baking sheet, cut triangles with a pizza cutter and bake until crispy.
