    Because of the incredible drop in temperatures and a couple of mean skiffy showers last night, I took the pancetta out of the fridge and leaving it on the rack placed the meatcloth around it and hung it up in the porch. I have a venison stew stewing so thought I would add some to the stew. The salt value was bang on.







    Guys, I believe that modesty is decorous to any human...but in this instance, I have none...Pancetta Mark I is beautiful...wwwwwwuuuuuuhhuuuuuuu!!

    In summary: homemade versus purchased...

    It is really no bother to make, once you have mixed up the spices, salts etc. I bought the meatcloth from Bin Inn for $5.00, in a two metre length.
    Homemade has a better flavour and there is the intrinsic quantity in the fact that you made it!
    If you used wild pork belly the cost would be negliable...if you buy pork belly at roughly 18.00 a kilo, and they sell the pancetta at @2.95 for 100 grams, you are still be making a saving. I bought it from the supermarket but I will ask the butcher about it next time. Added to that is the fact that you will have in the cupboard (with the exception perhaps the pink salt) all that is needed to make the cure. And a real miserly aspect, the fridge is still going to be on whether you make pancetta or chilli con carne!!

    Hmmmm, food for thought.

    Firm to the poke. 1 more day and I'll take it out of the brine and put it in the fridge to dry.

    What more do we need? If we are above ground and breathing the rest is up to us!
    Rule 1: Treat every firearm as loaded
    Rule 2: Always point firearms in a safe direction
    Rule 3: Load a firearm only when ready to fire
    Rule 4: Identify your target beyond all doubt
    Rule 5: Check your firing zone
    Rule 6: Store firearms and ammunition safely
    Rule 7: Avoid alcohol and drugs when handling firearms
