What in the world is Caul Fat?
Caul fat is the abdominal lining of an animal that encompasses the stomach. It looks like a lace net and stores quick-access energy for the animal. It’s commonly used for wrapping lean roasting meats to provide valuable juiciness and nutrient-rich essential fatty composition to your meal. Indigenous people cherished caul fat. In fact it was an extreme delicacy once an animal was harvested. Wrapping the heart in the caul fat and roasting over a fire was part of an ancient celebratory meal concluding a hunt. You see, organ muscles and tissues are some of the most nutrient dense parts of an animal, however, they are challenging to preserve long-term without modern vacuum seal and refrigerants. Organ meats would be consumed first, which, following a grueling hunt risking life and limb, that heart muscle dripping with liquid energy breathed life back into their weary bones.
Hunt celebrations were joyous. Not over the taking of life but for the thankfulness of sacrifice that allowed another life form to see another day.
Days were uncertain. We plan for retirement. They planned for winter. Storing enough rich, wholesome protein to sustain your family through the harsh winter was something to behold. Something to celebrate. Something to cherish.
And be damned if you wasted a morsel.
