Our own homecured bacon and pancetta for Charcutepalooza!
I made bacon for the February Charcutepalooza challenge and used it in a couple of recipes: stuffed popovers and homemade Cracker Jacks.
For the first Charcutepalooza challenge, I decided on two different seasonings for my duck breast – Maple Sugar and Juniper Berry/Bay Leaf.
