I’m a week out of my 30 days on the pancetta

Postby Copasspupil » Tue Feb 26, 2019 2:12 pm

It actually looks as good as it tastes. I remove a good amount of fat but you can see it still has what I think is a good amount left. This one is non traditional. Slightly sweet with a peppery bite. Black pepper, white pepper, jalapeño and dried Thai chili peppers on the outside layer. It has the flavor I wanted and for a first time try, the roll is tighter than I thought it would be.

It is actually ready to eat but I was told by TxDragon that it would get sweeter at the 30 day mark. This one is not salty like I’ve done in the past and not your typical flavoring you would normally have with Italian pancetta. It has the base ingredients but with a peppery bite and sweet undertones.

Here’s the regular pancetta? It is significantly harder than the other one.

The color of the one has to do with the molasses I used. It’s leaves the meat unusually dark is all. I assure you that it was cured the appropriate amount of time and salt content.

Finished product. The difference from last week to today. It is drier for sure. Slightly froze it to make slicing easier but. Looks good.

Rambo you might be thinking of prosciutto which is a cured ham leg and they take slivers off of it.
