Essentially a pantry. A larder is a cool place for storing food. A
"larder" is where early Americans kept their lard (which is the fat from the abdomen
of a pig that has been clarified for cooking). Larders were built on the part of the
house that received least amount of sun. Preppers sometimes refer to a "deep
larder," which is in reference to food storage items that can last 10-25 years. Some
Preppers have buried, hidden or split larders -- all in an effort to maximize their
storage efforts from looters or natural loss.
