Kraška panceta is meaty bacon made from pork belly meat. The meat is cured in salt, seasoned with a mixture of spices containing mostly black pepper, and matured outside in the typical wind of the Kras (Karst) region, called “burja”, for more than a month. No artificial smoking or heating are involved in this traditional process, thus preserving all precious proteins, vitamins and fats in the meat. This makes Kraška panceta highly nutritional and healthy in moderate amounts. Maturing process in the specific windy climate of the region gives this traditionally prepared meat a very intense, slightly rancid flavour that is perfect for modern gourmet cuisine.
