Lard will be in a refrigerated section, probably somewhere near the butter.

Cook 'em the first time at ~325deg to cook the inside then increase temp to ~375deg to crisp/brown the outside.

Yup.

Those lard fries required zero ketchup to enjoy.

Now...meh.

At my local Walmart it's with the baking supplies. For drop biscuits or pie crust it's the only thing to use.

Lard doesn't require refrigeration, but I keep mine in the refrigerator; it's much easier to cut it in when it's cold.

Fry some chicken in it.

It's good slathered on bread.

Here, it's in a green and white tub by the Crisco. I render my own lard when we get our pig every year. Big difference than store bought. Now I want crisp french fries!

And the funny part of this is, frying in canola is far worse for you than frying in beef tallow or any other fat that's solid at room temperature. Liquid oils like canola oxidize easily at high temperatures which causes drastically more cardiac damage than the solid fats.
