Fermín Ibérico de Bellota, known for producing the finest Ibérico in the world. An artisinal company, joining with Wagshal's in the USA because of their long heritage and ability to continually produce the finest products in Washington DC and the surrounding areas.
Smoked Ibérico de Bellota belly (pancetta) is sold in 1LB increments.
We recommend cooking this low and slow, to savor the flavor. Do not cook this as a traditional bacon!
Smoked Ibérico belly can be enjoyed as is, similar to the way you would enjoy Lardo. Thinly sliced, lightly seasoned with salt, pepper and a drizzle of Spanish EVOO on a nice baguette, you can really enjoy the smokiness and delicate flavor as the fat melts not only in your mouth, but at room temperature!
Slice it a little thicker for your Ibérico de Bellota bacon. It can be enjoyed by itself, or in other applications like sandwiches, salads, etc. Save the liquid after frying for additional applications where a little smoky Ibérico flavor is needed.
