We use the thick bellies from 50% heritage Berkshire breed pigs, big and meaty with generous layers of rich creamy fat. Rubbed with juniper berry, bay leaf, and peppercorn and fully aged for 2 months. Perfect for rendering for a vinaigrette, making lardons, wrapping around meat or seafood. Or crisp up for a knockout PLT!
