Default Re: Pancetta

Well, you're right :-), I don't eat it raw. Bad terminology on my part. I was thinking of just cooking and eating it straight, like American bacon. I've over salted bacon before, and it was unpleasant to eat with breakfast, but it worked well when cooking soups and sauces.

Hey Papavino! It's been a week. How's that pancetta doing ? :-) Waiting around a couple of weeks was the hardest part of making it, for me. Check out this soup recipe while you're waiting. It's killer, especially if you let it cook for a while. Calls for pancetta slices, but I used 1/4" cube. The lettuce bit sounds weird, but make sure to do it. It completes the soup! :-)
