    UMAi Pancetta

    Cash and Carry our local restaurant supply has started carrying these fresh bellies. They aren't full bellies. Which is perfect for a project like this. If I want a full one I can go to Costco. Per pound price is the same at both places right now.

    Started this on Saturday. Will be ready in a month or two. Will do a 2 week cure +/-. Then into the UMAi bag until I lose 40% of the weight.

    I'll check back in after the cure with some rolled photos.







    Back in a few weeks!

    Very interesting! Never heard of the UMAi bags - looks like a cool product. Now you have me wanting to make some prosciutto.

    Keeping an eye on this one, Case. I've got an UMAI kit that someone gave me for Xmas, and haven't done anything with it yet. I've got a couple of coppa/money muscles that I separated from a couple butts waiting in the freezer for me to get off my rear and make some coppa. Let us know your experience!

    This is my second go with UMAi. I have a Bresaola curing right now. It's been bagged and in the fridge for a week, lost about 12% so far. I have made pancetta and bresaola before just not with the UMAi.
