Would like to know if you (or any others here) have used the kidney fat from
cattle for bird suet? In particular, I am looking for confirmation that the
is softer than the traditional corporate USDA inspected beef suet. At about
fed lot (USDA) sources will be hard while the free range sources (aka, your
will be firm but not hard (not as soft as butter at room temperature but not
as butter in the fridge either). Somewhere in between
I have used it and it is just like you say " Somewhere in between"
Ours is pretty white- not yellow.
A good source for the suet-fat would be a slaughtering person. They will know
the better and smaller farms, too. I will ask ours if he can get some, if you
want me to. I'm pretty sure he just takes it to the rendering plant.
We just slaughtered ours a few weeks ago, but, I'll let you know next year,
if you still want some of ours. We usually have 5-7 steers.
