First Time Making Soap

Yes, soap. 
Really real soap bars!
I'm so excited!
A friend agreed to help me through the first process of my life.
It's a simple, old-fashioned recipe that likely my Grandma Kaat used herself nearly 70 years ago.
We used lye, water, and mixture of tallow (beef fat) and lard (pork fat) that I rendered myself.
A day later, a perfect cake of lovely, white, beautifully scented soap.
 Now it needs to cure for a month. I'll let you know how it works then!
