This Mario Batali's recipe from Babbo

½ cup sugar

½ cup kosher salt

10 to 15 whole black peppercorns

4 sprigs of fresh thyme leaves

2 pounds hog jowls


1. In a medium bowl, combine the sugar, salt, peppercorns and thyme. Coat
the hog jowls with the mixture, rubbing gently. Place the jowls in a
nonreactive casserole, cover, and refrigerate for 5 to 7 days.

2. Remove the jowls from the casserole and tie a piece of butcher's twine
around the middle of each. Hang the jowls in a dry cool place (it should not
be warmer than 60ºF.) for a t least 3 weeks. They should be firm and dry,
with a slight give. Slice and use like bacon or pancetta.



I use coarse sea salt in place of kosher salt which I pound to fine consistency with the peppercorns and the thyme. I also leave it 7-10 days.

Either or. I usually use unrefined as it makes for a nicer taste IMO, but regular granulated will do the same job, and that is what I used on the last batch because it is what I had to hand.

The Gods answer all our prayers. Unfortunately, sometimes, the answer is no!
