Fatworks Pasture-Raised Duck Fat
Pasture-raised ducks are expensive to raise and therefore very rare, so artisanal producer Fatworks, based in Colorado, has a very limited amount of this premium duck fat. It is the only pasture-raised duck fat sold nationally and far superior to the frozen tubs of duck fat found in grocery stores. The company kettle-renders and filters their product in small batches for a pure, clear-tasting product. And the extra effort is worth it: Pasture-Raised Duck Fat has a savory, nutty richness, elevating the most basic foods with an indescribable depth.
Fatworks Pasture Raised Pork Lard
More robust and aromatic than any other lard we've come across, Fatworks' Pasture-Raised Pork Lard has a meaty, mouthwatering flavor, and it's easy to spoon out and measure. Note that unlike neutral-tasting leaf lard, this small-batch cooking fat is made from pure belly fat and back fat, so it imparts a clear nutty richness to dishes. The Colorado-based producer sources from small family farms and kettle-renders its fat in small batches, ensuring a high-quality product. Take advantage of the lard's high smoke point (350 degrees Fahrenheit) for frying potatoes or sautéing vegetables.
Fatworks Organic Free-Range Chicken Fat
Nothing imparts buttery, roasted richness like golden schmaltz, or chicken fat, and artisanal producer Fatworks, based in Colorado, sells this unseasoned small-batch version so it's especially versatile and can be flavored to your liking. We love using it to add savory, meaty flavor to morning eggs or extra nuance to any chicken recipe. Fatworks' careful sourcing—only from small family farms—and kettle-rendering processing method ensure a velvety, full-flavored product that can be treated like a high-quality butter or olive oil.
