I had to look that up, and oh wow, I could make a pig of myself with some of those.

It’s another rabbit hole, but I actually will buy pork skin on just for that. It’s so fun watching them puff like popcorn in the hot oil, we season them with a spice mix called Tajin, it’s salt, cayenne, and lime powder. Yeah it will make you pig out.

See that is what i mean by a sharp flavour, I love lime and or lemon in or on things .
I will have to see to buy or make the " Tajin " you speak of . Thanks

I think the wife uses the Tajin on some fresh fruit. I have not used it, but we have it in the kitchen.

Funny how life gets in the way and the older I get it doesn’t slow down, it’s actually faster, I always thought it would slow down but it’s just not so.

Anyway, the thin belly is done with cure. I seasoned it with fresh ground fennel, coriander, black pepper, garlic and red Chile flake. Rolled it tied it and put it in a bag with about a half bottle of Merlot. See you again in a week.

Thank you Justin. Cure, salt, fennel and wine combined with pork is just worth it. I will soak this a day or two in red wine, then likely drain and remove the bag and finish in the fridge another 5 days naked to air dry.
