*Schmaltz is essentially the hardened fat that sits on top of chicken stock after it is cooked and refrigerated. It can be used to sauté vegetables or as a substitute for lard. To use schmaltz, carefully remove the fat cap from chicken stock and pat it dry with paper towels. If you don’t have schmaltz on hand but wish to avoid using butter, you can always opt for coconut oil.
