Lambcetta, Fennel, Carrots, Westvleteren

14 Feb

A low-key Feb 14th– catching up at home after a few whirlwind weeks, and making a quick and tasty hash starting from a homemade “lambcetta” (like pancetta, but lamb, air-cured with salt) given to me by a friend who’s been going all-out on the butchering and meat-preserving front recently.

It was delicious sliced thin on its own, and I don’t¬†think it would kill me. But to make it last, I just used a bit of it, minced up and fried with minced shallots, and then coarser-cut onions, fennel (yes, I’m an addict), and carrots.

Plus a Westvleteren 8¬†shipped from Belgium that I’d been saving for a special occasion.
