Just because it’s great stuff. Not just lard proper. The genre in general; in which I include various non-animal fats. Also, a brilliant word. Lard. Lardy. Lardiness. Makes you feel more rounded, comfortable, and cosy just saying it.
Lardy seaon’s greetings. But remember: lard is for life (your arteries will agree), not just for Christmas. Ah, lard: for any occasion, and any time of year. I know it’s December and we’ve only just past the solstice, but it’s never too early to start getting into the Valentine’s Day spirit!
