Lightly cured pork jowl (60g)
As used in authentic Carbonara or spicy Amatriciana pasta sauces. Superior to pancetta, it has a delicacy rarely matched with fat which renders to almost nothing but gives a fabulous flavour and texture to pasta sauces or it can be draped over the top of a pizza just out of the oven. Diced, it can be used to start a stew as a superior alternative to pancetta.
Whole pieces weigh approximately 450g prior to curing and drying.
Pork, salt, black pepper, white wine (sulphites).
