Wow, am I outdated! In my youth lard was out as unhealthy and Crisco was in, and I have simply accepted that as "truth" lo these many years.

(thanks for the education, good people.)

I have simply pretty much stayed with Canola, Olive Oil and butter for 40 years. I rarely fry anything, use butter for baking for (except for pie crusts) and simply have not paid attention.

Now, I do read that for lard to be better, it needs to be non-hydrogenated. Is that hard to find in grocery stores?

Well, I've eaten pies made with a lot of lard in the pastry for seventy years. Also loads and loads of butter, great Hovis doorsteps with half an inch of butter. I've fried almost everything in lard, and put great dollops of butter on greens and spuds. So did my parents and grandparents. And we all lived long lives with hardly any health probs. We also liberally sprinkled things with (gasp! horror!) SALT!! I'm not questioning the science on cholesterol and salt, and I admit I'm a bit tubby (not all that much though, 12 stone) but here I am, still breathing and perfectly healthy. (And have just enjoyed two crumpets for breakfast, dripping with butter) Pies are a most superb thing, and help to make a bit of meat or fruit go a long way.

Let's here it for lard! I mean, IF yer gonna eat a slice of pie, why not have a GOOD crust? Tender and flakey and not a pile of mushy goo... top OR bottom.

Fer gosh sakes! It's PIE. It's meant to be a decadent treat. Do it right. Just don't eat two slices in one day.... if ya do, well, yer gonna be a lardass.

1. My apple pie, lard in the crust, with a subtle amount of nicely balanced spice blend, filling thick enough to allow the pie to be served without collapsing but soft enough to be luscious rather than sticky.

2. My mum's lemon meringue pie recipe when I make it slightly more tart and with 20% more lemon zest (and yes, lard in the crust)

3. There used to be, on Hwy 6 in Mount Forest ON, a greasy spoon (what might be termed a diner in the USA) called Bill's, where his wife made THE most extraordinarily delicious fruit pies with totally edible crusts down to the last crumb. I used to eat some on my way to and from Festival of the Sound. Her pastry was better 'n mine. Unfortunately the place was long ago sold for retirement. If not since torn down and redeveloped, maybe the current owners have finally found a comparable baker...been ages since I was there to see what's up.

I think many scientists would say lard is healthy, butter is healthy, coconut oil is healthy and the Crisco is what is deadly. I vote for going with lard, after doing research to your satisfaction. Start with Dr. Mary Enig, fat researcher. mg

I confess I do not understand the applause for assorted custard pies -unless they be pumpkin!

Made with fresh organic pie pumpkins and honey to assuage the the conscience just a wee bit for actually using lard to create the perfect crust. The custard rich but not too sweet, and the custard   creamy but not absent a subtle texture. Lemon, coconut or key lime custards, with their intense sweetness and ultrasmooth texture don't appeal to me.

The crust makes the pie, regardless of the filling, in my book.

Any pie made with fresh fruit, as long as crust is good, appeals.

Having said that, I confess that I have never made a crust with lard - have experimented with oil, butter, coconut and all the healthy alternatives - and finally accepted that the next best thing to lard is Crisco - not nearly as healthy as the other alternatives but not nearly as lethal as lard. I've lost my touch from not cooking or baking much, but at one time was quite proud of the touch I had with pie crusts. Never, ever, however, equaled or surpassed my grandmother's lard crusts.

French apple tart has to be one of the best. It tastes and looks delicious especially with cinnamon syrup brushed over the top layer of sliced apples. The tart is delicious served hot or cold whatever the season with a dollop of whatever you fancy on top, cream, ice-cream or custard.

Steak and kidney pie. Lamb's kidneys and fairly inexpensive casserole beef. The best thing is not to add a load of fancy ingredients. Just chopped onion, salt and pepper. Casserole the meat and kidneys for long enough to make them tender (about 2 hrs). Thicken with Bisto gravy powder (not the granules, horrid stuff, the original powder) Allow to cool. Make the pastry with a mixture of plain and self-raising flour (about twice as much plain to SF) And use LARD (Gasp! Horror! Cholesterol!) and margarine, half fat to flour. Roll it quite thick. Make the pie up, saving most of the gravy, seal the lid with milk. Cook quite slowly for 40 minutes. Use the gravy for the meal, on top of the spuds and vegetables. It's nice cold too.

Becky, it's not being in the west, it's agri-business has taken dozens of fabulous old apple varieties out of the orchards in favour of newer. I don't recall the last time I saw a Stayman for sale -- probably 30 plus years ago when I worked at a cider mill. Might still be available in Mennonite areas of Ontario but I can't say for sure.

Fortunately there are people still growing whatever varieties will survive locally, either by experimenting themselves or from old-orchard grafts, but they're becoming more and more scarce. Another gene pool almost drained.

Sweetened condensed milk- my wife refuses to use it, period!

I remember, when I was a child, swiping a can of the stuff and eating it with a spoon. I couldn't do that now. I also used to gnaw on cones of hard brown sugar that my parents brought back from Mexico. My sugar intake when I was a kid was phenomenal. I think it contributed to my (so far) long healthy life!

I'm not the worlds best pastry cook I don't think I am anyway. It's not me who made the soggy bottom by the way I sampled this once in a High Street cafe in the town. It is slimy stodgey when you try to put a spoon through it rather than crisp and it does spoil the whole thing, more like a slimy gloop in the mouth, yuck.

Bakewell tart can be good it has a pastry base, layer of jam and sponge mixture on top with some almond essence added. But alternative flavours can be added to change it a bit and instead of raspberry jam a layer of cherry is nice with custard, cream or a scoop of ice-cream to top it.
