Tallow: a foundational homestead product

  1. my husband made tallow baby butt balm for our future bebe we are adopting. LOVE the firestarter idea though – totally didn’t even think about that! that being said, we don’t use paper towels in our house…hmm…


  2. Baby butt balm! That’s a great one to add to the list. I know the wastefulness of disposable paper products, but recycled paper towels (which are easy to find around here) have so many benefits–mostly wiping things I don’t want in my septic–that it’s worth the tradeoff in our house.


  3. You’ve convinced me to render some lard. I’ll get some back fat and I’ll try to make some sausage too. Hopefully mother won’t complain about me using lard for cooking. 😉 Maybe she won’t read this!
