Suet, is the solid fat secreted in the cellular membrane under the skin, and various parts of the animal body, for instance, in sheep, oxen, etc. but not in the human species.

The uses of suet, for culinary and other purposes, require no farther explanation: we shall therefore only remark, that dishes prepared from this substance and flour, ought to be boiled, till the fat be intimately blended with the mealy ingredient; as otherwise they will prove oppressive to the stomach, and be with great difficulty digested. - See also Pudding.
