Preserving the Harvest: Rendering Tallow

Preserving the Harvest: Rendering Tallow

How to Make Your Own Tallow Keeping with one of the quintessential homestead values of frugality, we decided to have our butcher set aside all of the trimmed fat from our grass finished beef from this year.  Now a person might wonder why would someone want to render beef fat. First off it seems wasteful and almost disrespectful to the animal to not keep and utilize this fine resource.  The fat from your animal harvest is part of God’s bounty…

Preserving the Harvest: Biltong

Preserving the Harvest: Biltong

I know you might be thinking “What the heck is a biltong?”, but stay with me for a second and all will be revealed!  Simply put biltong is like South African style jerky… sort of.  There are some significant differences in how biltong is made vs. jerky, but they are both ways to preserve meat by drying it.  While you may be more familiar with how jerky is made, I hope you will appreciate the simplicity, flavor, and low energy…

Out With the Old, In With the New… Cows!!!

Out With the Old, In With the New… Cows!!!

We like to eat plenty of beef here at the Traditional Catholic Homestead!  We also like to eat as healthy as possible, so we go in for grass fed/finished if we can.  Last year we made the leap into raising our own, and this year we’re taking it a step further! So after all my big talk of keeping up with the site and posting regularly, I went and dropped the laptop and broke the charger!  Well I’ve got a…
