Why? Because you can! And pickle, and jam, or otherwise celebrate the resurgence of the domestic arts our forebears held so dear. Put on your best apron and step into our kitchen, won't you?
Charcutepalooza dry curing challenge: the kabanosy were a bust, but the lardo was fantastic and easy to make!
A six year old shows how to make lardo at home in a video post. Also included is a recipe for quiche using the cured, dried pork back fat.
For the November Charcutepalooza I attempted the Noix de Jambon, and despite an error in technique, it was delicious. I also made Pork Belly Lardo, tasty as well.
