Could someone please explain what "shortening" is? I live in South Africa, so I would also appreciate the brand name, if possible, of similar products available in SA.

Thank you!

Editor's Note: Shortening is hydrogenated vegetable oil. It is similar to lard but made from oil. Sometimes butter or margarine can be used as a substitute. Crisco is a popular one here in the states.
