So, what is manteca de cerdo ibérico?

Manteca de cerdo ibérico is a prized ingredient in Spanish cuisine, known for its rich and flavorful qualities. Made from the rendered fat of free-range Iberian pigs, this lard is highly sought after due to the animal's unique diet of acorns and herbs. The resulting product is a smooth and creamy white lard that melts easily and enhances the flavor of any dish it is used in. Due to its high smoke point, manteca de cerdo ibérico is perfect for frying and sautéing, adding a depth of flavor and richness to dishes that cannot be matched by other cooking fats.
