Lard is the melted fat of pork, which is used as a fat in cooking, baking, and deep-frying. It has a creamy white color, and a flavor that ranges from neutral to flavorless, and odorless, depending on how it's been made. In general, lard can be used anywhere you'd use butter. So you can use it in baking, in pies, cookies, biscuits, and pastries, and for making the masa for tamales. You can also use it for sautéeing, as a topping for rice and veggies, and as a spread on toast. But lard is also useful in ways that butter isn't. For instance, lard is a widely used fat for deep-frying. Its smoke point is relatively low, around 370 to 375 F, but if you can keep the temperature at around 360 to 365 F, it will produce crispy, flavorful fried chicken.
