Anyone know where to buy freshly rendered lard in the Scranton area? Not the blocks of shelf-stable hydrogenated Snow Cap lard you can find in most supermarkets, but the stuff that you sometimes find in tubs in the meat department. I already tried Schiff's, with no luck.

I want to make tamales and there are a few ingredients that I've found hard to track down since moving here. I found the masa and the corn husks at the Weiss on the south side, but not the lard. I don't want to use hydrogenated lard if I don't have to, and I really don't want to use shortening.

Garcia's Market in the 800 block of Pittston Ave caters to the Mexican trade - perhaps they carry it?

Thanks, Garcia's had exactly what I was looking for from a producer in Brooklyn, and a lot of other Mexican products as well. Unfortunately, they had it at room temperature, even though it says on the package to keep it refrigerated and that kind of lard can go bad if it's not, so I didn't take a chance on it. I went with the hydrogenated lard.
