Panchetta - An Acquired Taste?

al b. darned | Dec 19, 2009 12:32 PM

Just before Thanksgiving I ordered the "Thanksgiving Duo" from Salumi Cured Meats in Seattle ( consisting of an oregano salami and a cinnamon panchetta.

The salami was really good, but...

The panchetta was fatty, salty and generally not to my liking. (I realize it is supposed to be fatty and salty) I tried several it ways ("raw", thin sliced and fried, chopped up fried and mixed in with something.) Even when chopped fine and fried it overpowered whatever I put it in.

What am I missing?
