How to Render Tallow in a Slow Cooker

27 Nov

I thought the butcher gave us a bag of brains when we picked up our quarter cow last month. Everything was packaged and wrapped in white paper, and very nicely labeled. And then there was this clear plastic bag of what seriously looked like a brain. As I started to dig deep and pull my knowledge up from the depths of my college anatomy class, Nic blurts out, “That’s a bag of fat.” A big bag of beautiful tallow!

How to Render Tallow in a Slow Cooker | WholeGreenLove.com

Well, actually it wasn’t tallow yet. What I had was a big bag of suet, the interior fat tissue of the cow. To get good use out of suet, you first need to gently heat it to remove the fat from the rest of the tissue. This heating and separation process is called “rendering”.

How to Render Tallow in a Slow Cooker | WholeGreenLove.com

 

How to Render Tallow in a Slow Cooker | WholeGreenLove.com

Rendered tallow can be used for many things, including high heat cooking (just like butter and lard) and in beauty products. It’s an excellent remedy for eczema! Click here to get my recipe for Deep Moisturizing Body Salve made with tallow. I recently made a new batch that spreads on your skin more like lotion. I just increased the amount of olive oil in the recipe to make it more spreadable. My skin feels ah-MAH-zing. (Happy Endings, anyone?)

Happy tallow rendering!

What types of things do you cook in tallow?

Deep Moisturizing Body Salve

4 Nov

It’s that time of year again. The time of chilly days, hot tea, slipper boots, bundled up afternoon walks, and nights of holiday prep. I love it. I feel like Fall could have stuck around a bit longer…but I love the anticipation of the Christmas season.

The hubs and I took two days away this weekend to celebrate our anniversary. Our daughter stayed with my parents and we had such a relaxing time in Lake Geneva together. Has anyone else ever been? We don’t make the time to go enough.

Lake Geneva

One not-so-awesome thing about this time of year is the dry air and skin in need some a little extra love. My hands get SO dry! It’s a combination of all the hand washing and time in the kitchen that really does a number on them. I especially noticed the dry air when sleeping in our hotel room this weekend. Lyla’s cheeks also get really chapped in the winter. And I’m not going to stop smooching on those cheeks. I needed another solution.

Deep Moisturizing Body Salve | WholeGreenLove.com

Traditionally made skin products contained animal fats, up until the push to also remove animal fats from our diet. Good luck finding animal fats in store bought skin products. You just won’t find it. Because saturated fat makes up about 50 percent of our cell walls, it makes sense to use something on our skin that is of similar makeup. Tallow is 50-55 percent saturated fat, with the remainder being monounsaturated. (Click here to read more) It makes the perfect topical moisturizer for the skin. Plus, olive oil, which contains mostly monounsaturated fat, is a great addition to the salve. It adds a type of fat that is also in line with the makeup of your skin cells, and it is liquid at room temperature so it makes the salve more spreadable.

Wondering where you can find tallow? When we got our quarter cow this year, I requested the tallow (also called suet, before it’s been rendered). You could also contact your local butcher and request it from them. Your best bet is fat from a cow that has been raised in healthy conditions, grass fed, and without hormones or antibiotics. Toxins are known to be stored in fat, which is exactly what tallow is.

Got a big hunk of fat that needs to be rendered into tallow? I have a post coming soon that will show you how to easily render tallow in your crockpot.

DIY Honey Pumpkin Face Mask

27 Oct

I try to pamper my skin at least once a week with a nice, homemade face mask. I don’t like messing around with figuring out what ingredients are in the store bought varieties, and I’m a little cheap when it comes to pampering myself. So, the DIY face mask is always the way to go. This pumpkin version is perfect for this fall season. We use pumpkin in so many recipes this time of year that I always have a little extra in the fridge.

Honey Pumpkin Face Mask | WholeGreenLove.com

All of the ingredients in this recipe have a purpose in pampering your skin:

  • Pumpkin contains antioxidants and enzymes
  • The lactic acid in plain yogurt helps exfoliate the skin
  • Jojoba oil moisturizes without clogging pores
  • Honey is anti fungal and anti bacterial to reduce breakouts

Have you tried any of our other face mask recipes?
