So, what is salt pork?

Salt pork is a versatile ingredient in the culinary world, made by curing and preserving fatty cuts of pork with salt. Its flavor profile is heavily influenced by the salt used in the curing process, making it an excellent seasoning for dishes that require a savory punch. It can be cooked on its own, rendered down as a base for soups and stews, or added to vegetables and grains to enhance their flavor. Salt pork's rich and salty taste makes it a popular ingredient in dishes like chowders, baked beans, and collard greens, adding depth and complexity to these simple recipes.
