I’ve used the Organic Spectrum “shortening” from PCC. Yes, it’s solid like that dirty word called Crisco but it isn’t hydrogenated. When I asked PCC if they sold lard this is what they recommended because they don’t sell lard. I’ve been using it for years so it wasn’t really news to me when they suggested it. I don’t have any on hand right now so I can’t give you the specifics as to what its made from…I’m not vegetarian but I was just wondering what a vegetarian should use to get a similar result! Thanks!

I experimented with Organic Spectrum and found it to be very solid as well. If you try the EB products, let us know how they turn out for you.

What do you tell vegetarians??

Good question. I’ve been experimenting with the “buttery sticks” and “natural shortening” made by Earth Balance. Recipes can be adapted for vegetarians and those who are dairy free. There are probably some other options out there and I’d love to hear what others are using.

I am entering a pie crust made with Crisco, margarine, and canned fruit filling in the pie contest!
And then I’m going to decorate the top of the pie with squeeze-tube frosting, sprinkles, and maraschino cherries!
