Back fat (aka Iberico fat back) is creamy, sweet fat from the belly of the hog. It can be used in a variety of applications: sausage making, making rillettes, barding (wrapping lean meat or poultry in fat to keep it moist during cooking), or curing to produce lardo, an Italian delicacy.
Iberico back fat offers a significant flavor upgrade over conventional pork back fat.
Iberico pork is a Spanish culinary treasure, amongst the finest pork in the world. While iberico is best known for the famous slow-aged hams, the other cuts are succulent, moist & delicious. This iberico pork is raised free range on traditional Spanish pastures known as dehesas. It’s fed a natural diet of grain, corn, wheat, grass & forage. No added growth hormones or sub-therapeutic antibiotics are ever used.
Iberico pork raised in this way is considered “Campo Iberian Pork” under Spanish law, a term which requires that the animals are raised in the open air on an all-natural cereal-based diet.
