Smoked Pancetta Lardons, a specialty from our associated business, Yorkshire Dales Charcuterie.

This product stands as a testament to the traditional craft of meat preservation, direct from North Yorkshire.

Our lardons come from premium heritage breed pork, carefully chosen from local farms to ensure supreme quality and taste. These indigenous breeds are celebrated for their superior meat, laying the groundwork for the exceptional flavour of our pancetta.

The preparation starts with meticulous curing, using a blend of aromatic herbs and spices to infuse the pork with a complex and rich taste. This crucial step fosters the development of the unique flavour profile of our pancetta.

Following the curing, the meat is gently smoked over oak wood, adding a delicate yet impactful smoky note that enhances the meat’s natural taste. This oak-smoked technique is central to achieving the sophisticated flavour harmony that defines our pancetta.

The process concludes with an air-drying period of one week, allowing the flavours to intensify and the texture to reach its prime. This drying method guarantees a pancetta that’s not just flavour-rich but also has the perfect texture, ideal for a range of culinary uses.

At Yorkshire Dales Charcuterie, we’re dedicated to upholding the charcuterie tradition, combining timeless methods with the best local ingredients. Our Smoked Pancetta Lardons embody this dedication.

Savoury Pastries: Incorporate the lardons into fillings for savoury pies or pastries, pairing with cheese, vegetables, or herbs for a snack or light dish.
