Guanciale at Cafe Rouge.

I went their last week for brunch and picked up some guanciale at their meat market. Guanciale ( Italian for pigs cheek) is cured, then cut and cooked like pancetta. But, I swear, this stuff is saltier than salt. I couldn't even eat in cooked into a nice red sauce I made up. It was probably 5 times saltier than bacon, literally! Any Comments?
