German term or phrase: Apfel-Griebenschmalz
I've found numerous google references to Grieben, but still can't figure out exactly what they are, especially in this context. Any Bavarians out there who can help?

thanks, to be precise, greaves are made from Flomen, which is lard from the pig`s belly and kidneys. One melts it down, takes off the melted fat and whats left are the greaves, a little bit of salt and spread it on bread.

agree  Sarah Downing: I actually know it as dripping (in British English) combined with crackling (apple and crackling dripping). I think Grieben can be translated as both, but greaves is not a term I have heard commonly used in BE

lard (AE) / dripping (BE) with greaves and apples


Explanation:
may sound slightly more appetising; "Grieben" are the solid, protein-containing residues that are left over when raw pork fat is rendered.
