I'm starting a recipe book of my late grandma's recipes, I've come across a couple of items that I'm not sure of and need help converting to current day ingredients.
ie: spry, lard, suet.  can anyone convert these for me?

Spry is nothing other than vegetable shortening.  Getcha some Crisco (or margarine)

Lard is currently available at any supermarket, why substitute?

Suet is best purchased from your local butcher.  In certain applications it is best to not replace it as it is generally used because of its high melting point.  There is such a thing as vegetarien suet

I have some lists of these, but I don't know where they are right now.

I think I might find it later and update you if I'll find it.
