Hello All! I'm back with yet another question about where to buy stuff :P I finally bought my oven thermometer abroad and am ready to start baking but I realized many of my favorite recipes call for shortening. Is it possible to buy it anywhere here?
For those that might not be sure what "shortening" is, it is a solid plant fat for cooking- like margarine but white in color and higher in fat (with higher melting point). I would compare it to lard but animal fat is not an option for me :)
By the way, I am never sure if I am posting in the right category- do these sort of queries belong here in "Expat Q&A" or in "Town Talk"?
