I recommend caution in using commercial lard. Almost all of it has been hydrogenated to either "improve uniformity" -- they added softer muscle fats and want to hide that -- or to "extend shelf life" -- they want it to still be salable months or years past its natural rancidity date.
Hydrogenation makes it act _very_ differently from real lard. It not only neither fries nor blends like the real thing, it doesn't take very much to be very bad for you.
I won't even bother talking about the preservatives. I just ate.
