    Kitchen Dictionary: pancetta

    Pronounced: pan-CHEH-tuh

    An Italian bacon that is cured with salt and spices, but not smoked so it is moister and has a mellower flavor. Pancetta is flavorful and slightly salty and comes in a sausagelike roll. Commonly used for stews and braises by rendering the fat and using it to cook other ingredients. Also a fine savory addition to stuffings.

    Ethnicity: Italian Ingredient

    Season: available year-round

    How to store: Refrigerate tightly wrapped up to 3 weeks, frozen up to 6 months.

    Substitutions: Bacon. If you substitute bacon, blanch it first in boiling water to subdue the smoky flavor.
