This wretched monstrosity is a Mosefund mangalitsa belly a day into its curing process. This was a bit of a process. I really wanted to find an outlet for all this lovely, fragrant oregano I have. I've just never seen it used much in curing.
I have fallen in love with the simple way to preserve figs, which I learned at my weekly markets in Certaldo. I serve them with Gorgonzola cheese and use them often in savory dishes, but are naturally sweet.
