⏲ Total Time
45 minutes

🧂 Ingredients

  • 🥕 1 stick vegetable shortening

🍳 Cookware

  • 1 box grater
  • 1 cold bowl or onto a cold plate

📝 Instructions


Substitute for suet.

Step 1

If you can't find suet then we have found that grated vegetable shortening (such as Trex, Crisco or Copha) is a good substitute. To grate the shortening firstly freeze a stick or block of it until firm but not solid (this usually takes about 30 minutes).

Step 2

Grate the shortening on the coarse side of a box grater into a cold bowl or onto a cold plate, returning the fat to the freezer if it becomes too soft.

Step 3

Before using the grated shortening chill it for another 10 to 15 minutes in the freezer.
