Saddened by the exclusion of many diners . . . .but HOORAY for lard!!  Back
in the saddle after a 60-year decline from American cuisine.  So, it appears
that pork fat is again healthier for us than partially hydrogenated
vegetable protein . . . sorry . . . fat.  Lard crusts are very tasety and
perform quite well for those with the health, dietary and food preference
ability to use them.
