I’m surprised at the common disgust non-vegetarians have for lard pie crusts. They scrunch up their faces and question why you wouldn’t just use butter.
I’m not advocating slathering lard on toast, but it does make a better, flakier crust.
And now The Oregonian poses the question, via Chow, of whether olive oil produces a better crust.
Come on guys, suck it up, and use the pig fat.
