Default The long search is over, found some Guanciale!

None of the Italian markets we have looked in carry Guanciale, only pancetta. We went to a Farmer's Market this morning because one of the vendors raises some Heritage pork breeds and we wanted some Berkshire pork belly. He only had a less than 1# piece, so we will call him to bring down a 3-5# piece. We noticed a place called The Italian Depot right next to the market. It wasn't open at the time. After we were done at the market, as we were leaving, it was open. Just for the heck of it we stopped. For being called a "Depot", it was a very small store front. However, we scored this:





I paid $70.00 for a 5-1/4# package. The cheapest we could find, a 3-1/2# package on line for $54.00 + overnight shipping.

The Metropolitan Market carrys a full line of Salumi sausages and also guanciale. Salumi is owned by Mario Batalia's father, a retired Boeing engineer. I used it for this:

Guanciale appears to be the preferred choice for carbonara, over pancetta. Johnny, we will be making that Mario recipe. We bought a Berkshire hog jowl at the market and will try our hand at homemade Guanciale.

I've used guanciale one time in a pasta dish. It's on here somewhere. Can't wait to see your dish. I hope that making your own is much less expensive. Even though I liked it, I've never bought any more because of the price.
