Made the pita bread from this site and it came out great, should have taken their tip though and used some whole wheat flour as the bread was a little bland
you cant make REAL tortillas without lard. This post is awesome!
haha, lard OR vegetable shortening is fine. Don't Panic!! :)
i dont know how i feel about using lard...
Eh, I want to like it but I just can't do it. Fuck lard.
nothing beats well made, fresh, flour tortillas
MMMMmmmmmm. Lard! Sometimes you just have to clog those arteries for the food you crave. I'm a BIG BIG Mexican food fan, and can't wait to try these tortillas.
I am inspired!
From the page: "Flour Tortillas"
a warm, fresh tortilla with butter is the closest one can get to heaven. can't wait to try this recipe!
....I just use harina preparada and water to make my tortillas....
" ... I am supposed to be sorry that I like lard, that I know it is supposed to be evil, and gross, and made from animals. I'm not. No, I am PROUD to say I cook with lard. Using lard I can make tortillas that make people beg. Some have offered me cash to make them a batch. I'm not kidding. Lard adds a depth of flavor with out any funky aftertaste. It has a high smoke point so it does not scorch, and it lasts for a really long time in the pantry. It is also versatile. I use it combined with butter in my pie crusts. But that is an entry for another day."
My gramma always used lard - even for her sugar cookies. And her home-made soap.
Yeah, lard is gross.
Anxious to try it. I miss good tortillas.
