My first attempt at pancetta...

 Mmmm... a fresh slab of pig belly...  3 pounds worth
 The first coating of salt
 Doused in brown sugar, salt, coriander, black pepper, lemon peel and maybe other things...  I can't quite remember.
After its first week of curing.  I cut off a slab to give it a taste test before drying it.  Sweet, herby, quite delicious. 

It is now rolled in two pieces and sitting in my fridge giving up its moisture.  I will post more pictures once it is finished.
