I don't know much, but I do know that I would like some duck fat french fries. Yes please, Baby Jesus! A coupla spiralized russets, a sturdy saucepan, a big, fat wad of Fatworks kettle-rendered quack fat, and I don't even need to go to the Belgian frites place and pay $8 to get them.

8-ounce jars of Duck Fat are just one of your choices in Fatworks' line of animal fats for cooking. Committed to ending what they consider an unmerited war on fat, the self-described "Fattitude Adjusters" at Fatworks also produce oils including Beef Tallow, Pasture Raised Lard, Leaf Lard, Chicken Fat, Lamb Tallow, and Goose Fat. These real, natural oils were staples in our diets up until the early- to mid-20th century, and some contemporary research suggests they never deserved the bag rap they got during the margarine and vegetable oil craze, and that many of us still find hard to let go of now.

Those who adhere to the Paleo diet or the Weston Price school of thought are Fatworks' primary audiences, but I'd say a close second is those of us who want to eat food cooked in or with oils that make it taste F'ing delicious. Homemade Apple Pie with Pork Lard Crust, anyone?
