Rendering Suet & Week 33

We were given a big batch of ground suet last Friday night so a long with out regular chores and winter prepareing we got to render suet into tallow.

Have a low to med. heat going. You can do this on a stove, camp stove, grill or camp style fire.
We put a grill work down over a fire. Ours is the back of an old refrig.
Put the ground suet in your pot, we did half at a time so it would melt faster.
The meat scraps will go to the bottom of the pot.
When melted well drain though fine cheese cloth or a pillow case into another pot. 
Clean the pot you melted the suet in pot and put the melted suet in the pot and put it back on the heat. Heat again and then strain again in a clean cloth or fine cheese cloth. Put aside or into conatiners or jars.
Do the same with your other half of suet.
Put in frig. to harden, it will turn white and solid and then stick this in your freezer. You now have tallow.
It can stay in the frig. if you are making soap or candles in the next couple of weeks.

We are told: If ye are prepared ye shall not fear.

This can go spiritually as well as temporally. It doesn’t matter whether in food storage or preparing for winter or planning the summer’s garden, a test in school or making dinner for a regular meal or a party.

Are we prepared for problems and challenges in life through prayer and reliance on our Heavenly Father and lessons we may be taught during those times?
