So, what is backfett?

Backfett is a German term for rendered pork fat that has been melted down and filtered to remove any impurities. It is a traditional ingredient in many German and Austrian dishes, providing a rich, savory flavor and tender texture to meat and other foods. Backfett is particularly popular in baking, where it is used to create flaky, buttery pastry crusts and to give bread a crispy crust. This versatile ingredient is also prized for its high smoke point, making it ideal for frying and sautéing. With its rich flavor and versatility, backfett is a must-have ingredient for any home cook or professional chef.
