Overheard in the Kitchen:

Me: "I'm not sure where on the pig pancetta is from. It might be like what the Brits and Canuckistanis eat; back bacon*."

RX: "Back bacon! Back Donner and Blitzen! Back Bacon! Back Newton! Back Galen!"

It gets fairly nerdy here at times...

*Incidentally, pancetta is good, wholesome pork belly. And now we've learned something. Thank you internets!

The air at Roseholme surely must crackle with electricity of a morning... :)

You gotta expect things like this when you mess with RX's sleeping hours.

I want my bacon, back bacon, back bacon, back . . .

C'mon, SOMEONE had to do it!

FWIW, pancetta comes from the same place that our bacon comes from, it's just been rolled into a cylinder and tied before curing. It's also got different spices, and they don't smoke it. It's not supposed to be all that difficult to maek.

You can smoke bacon? Is it hard to light?

Pancetta, just the right size to go on a bagel with a slice of provalone.
