Iberico Pork Backfat, 4 Inch - Tocino Iberico

They say the flavors in the fat, and after using this rich and savory Iberico Tocino, you're sure to agree. Use this fatback to instantly boost the flavors of your recipes, rounding them out and lifting them with their porky, nutty characteristics.

A solid sheet of fat sourced from the back of the hog, the tocino, better known as pork fatback, is a versatile ingredient perfect for adding singularly delicious flavor to your meals. A must-have ingredient if you make any of your own cured meats, fatback is an intrinsic element of sausage-making, charcuterie, and paté, adding flavor and juiciness. Within the same vein, strips of fatback are also used to infuse flavor and moisture into leaner meats through a method called larding.

Packed in salt and herbs, Tocino can be cured on its own and transformed into that Italian delicacy known as Lardo. Passed through a meat grinder with herbs and salt, you can whip fatback into a delightful spread perfect for smearing on all manner of bread, from the classic boule to sweet cornbread. Savory and rich, there’s no end of uses for this flexible portion.
