If I can't find edible suet, what can I substitute for it in our homemade Mince meat?
Story County Iowa
According to the Food Substitution Bible if your recipe calls for 1/2 cup of suet you can substitute:
* 1/2 cup vegetarian suet such as Atora (made from vegetable fat)
* 1/2 cup vegetable shortening
* 1/2 cup butter
* 1/2 cup rendered and solidified beef, chicken or pork fat
