Smalec – recipe ingredient

Smalec - pork fat is extracted from the perineal part of the pork carcass. Pork fat is reheated, similarly to butter. Ready-made smalec was previously poured into home-made sausages for long-term storage. Smalec, or melted pork fat, is considered one of the best animal fats by nutritional value, with the exception of butter. Smalec is widely used in cooking, but only in countries where religion allows. Smalec is added in the preparation of various kinds of meat, cereals and other things.
