The pancetta steccata is a typical Emilian salami. It owes its name to the ancient habit of blocking the bacon, once sewn, between two sticks of fir wood, to avoid air infiltration. Originally, screws were used to tighten the slats, today we use a more comfortable elastic cord.
Comes from the sectioning of the belly of domestic pigs. From this specific adipose cut the so-called "pancettone" is obtained, whose squaring and trimming gives rise to the actual pancetta.
