Oleomargarine Manufacture

The process by which suet is converted into
the substance called oleamargarine is as follows: The crude suet after
first being washed in cold water is "rendered," melted, and then drawn
off into movable tanks. The hard substance is subjected to a hydraulic
pressure of 350 tons, and the oil extracted. The butter is made from
the oil thus obtained, while the hard substance remaining is disposed
of as stearine. The oil, being carried off into churns, is mixed with
milk and from three to five per cent of dairy butter. It is then drawn
off in a consistent form, and cooled with broken ice. The latter is
soon removed, and the butter worked up with a small portion of salt.
When this is done the article is ready for packing and consumption.
