Default Goose grease for making tamales?

I have several quarts of goose fat in the freezer. How well would it
work for making tamale masa dough? I don't have a source of good lard,
just supermarket processed lard.

I've never done what you suggest, but if I were to hazard
a guess I would say the tamales will be tasty, denser /
not as fluffy as those with lard, and probably would not stay fresh
as long. Probably they will be very good. Get hold of some
duck leg meat and make duck tamales, I say.

Actually, no. What was it about? Did Michael or Dwight do something
stupid again? (that kind of sums up every episode, doesn't it) ;-)

Do it. It's so delicious. I bet if you were a Mexican cook and you had
goosefat, you wouldn't even ask.--

Dwight brought in a dead goose and made a comment about using the goose fat.

The hydrogenated supermarket lard IS "heart attack."
I don't know how the goose fat would be for that use, but lard can be
pretty easy to come by. You just render it yourself.

It's strongly flavoured but should work texturally. You can make your
own lard by rendering pork fat.

Exactly, they cook with what they have. If they have lard, they use lard,
if they have chicken fat they use that. So tamales were and are cooked with
every form of fat there is because they never waste anything in peasant
cooking.
