Jumping up and down!

This is my new discovery:

Shortening, Organic

Size: 24oz

Made with organic palm oil, Spectrum Organic Shortening is a healthy, trans-fat free alternative to traditional shortening for flaky crusts and crispy fries.

100% Organic Expeller Pressed Palm Oil.

It's not really a new discovery, but a re-discovery.  For two years, I used Spectrum shortening in bread and pie crusts.  Then, because I liked the convenience of Earth Balance shortening sticks, I switched.  The problem with Earth Balance products is they all contain soy :(  I gave up hope on being able to use shortening because I thought all shortening had soy (Crisco does as well).  But a soy-free book synopsis on Amazon said Spectrum shortening was soy free and sure enough it is.  This is excellent.  I was afraid I was going to have to render my own lard (which I may do anyways, just for the hell of it).
