"One of my dearest neighbors is a sweet little lady who was a young girl in Germany during WWII. One of the things she shared with me was that oil/lard/fat was one of the rarest commodities during the war. People wanted something to cook their food with - for flavor and consistency. I've always remembered her advice and make sure that I keep a lot on hand in my food storage. It tends to spoil quickly, so you have to use and rotate it. I don't ever want to be caught without it during an emergency. My dear friend told me that oils were as valuable as money during that terrible time!"
