Smoked Slana (Lardo)
Also known as fatback, this bacon is made from 100% pure back fat and is not for the feint of heart. It is heavily salted and smoked, but one of the treasures of charcuterie. When purchased make sure to wash off the salt prior to using, and it can then be sliced and cooked (will crisp quickly!), or sliced very thin and is perfection on a crostini or bread.
