"A man who was fond of wine was offered some grapes at dessert after dinner. "Much obliged," said he, pushing the plate aside; "I am not accustomed to take my wine in pills."--Jean Antheleme Brillat-Savarin, The Physiology of Taste

Personal Notes:
This is basically for babies who don't have any or many erupted teeth yet because it's important that they cannot chew off any of the fat back and swallow it. The baby may swallow a bit of grease, but basically the grease and most of the salt will have been cooked out of the fat back from its having been used to prepare other dishes. Recommended versus plastic teething items (who wants to let a child gnaw on plastic?). Remember - organic only. This was told to me by my elderly father. Organic because in those days pork was basically just cured with salt with none of the modern chemicals, and pigs were not fed all the drugs and chemicals as they are today.
