We have been blessed with many natural sustaining gifts, but we often fail to utilize these gifts in their entirety.
It’s common to hear of harvesting deer for the delicious meat; however, have you heard of deer soap? Not me! It’s soap made from deer fat, also known as tallow. Tallow is the fat found between the hide and meat of the deer. Tallow can also be used as a lubricant for metals, conditioner for leathers, or even to make a candle (https://www.wideopenspaces.com/14-uses-deer/). I spent the day with a good friend of mine, Joe Mcllwane, to learn the process of making soap from tallow. The preparation process takes approximately 3 1/2 hours, depending on the amount of tallow. The process can provide up to 20 bars of soap. These make for great self-sustaining Christmas gifts!! I am happy to share the process with you.
