So, what is rasvad?

Rasvad is a type of food ingredient that is popular in Estonian cuisine. It is a form of rendered animal fat that is typically made from pork, although other meats such as beef and lamb can also be used. The fat is first melted down and then strained to remove any impurities, resulting in a clear, golden liquid that is solid at room temperature. Rasvad has a rich, savory flavor that adds depth and complexity to dishes, and is often used in traditional Estonian recipes such as black bread and sausages. Its high smoke point makes it ideal for frying and baking, and it can also be used as a substitute for butter or oil in many recipes.
