I am trying to make home made tortillas and I was wondering if I can substitute Lard with Ghee as I am not too keen about the taste of lard. My understanding is that ghee, like lard doesn't have lot of moisture and hence it can be used. But I hope I can get a better answer from more experienced cooks.
You could try substituting leaf lard for regular lard.
Lard has characteristics that make it perfect for tortillas. But the big square bricks of MANTECA sometimes taste piggy even to me.
Leaf lard is super premium lard from a particular part of the pig. I have found it only at farmers markets and occasionally at specialty butchers but of course you could order on line. It is expensive. It is essentially tasteless. I bought a tub and my daughter used the entire thing for pie crust, which my lardophobic wife ate merrily.
