Pre Spring Pancetta

We’ve been a touch neglectful in our reports this winter. Meh, winter. The time changed today and that signals that spring is around the corner. What better way to celebrate than to get a little pancetta action going on. Here’s a lovely Berkshire belly that Mr. Duess sourced from his new neighbourhood butcher in Kensington market. Its all tied up and clothed to hang in my drafty drafty kitchen cupboard. Take that Mr. Duess!

Well, now its ready for the drafty cupboard. Cheesecloth keeps it contained but still open to the air.

Cured and tied. Ready for the drafty cupboard.
