I tried @cmzaha recipe with 45% tallow, 25% lard and man, it was crazy slow to trace. I was doing a simple two color in the pot swirl using a discoloring FO and after 10 minutes or so, I gave up blending and just swirled best I could. It just started to reach a light trace as I finished pouring. Well over a hour passed and it was still soft enough I could have easily scooped it out of the mold and plopped it into another had I wished. I went ahead and popped it in the over to CPOP. Does anyone else use a blend of these fats? How have you found trace? My high lard has nothing on this when it comes to being slow. and because I want to show it off, the new mold DD got for me. I've wanted it forever, it will be my new salt bar mold but for now, I used it for the tallow soap.
