Like I mentioned earlier, got 2 nice, thick jowls from the butcher. Time to make more guanciale, this is my absolute favorite cured meat.

Guanciali- 1250G in total:

fresh garlic-1.25G(.1%)
fresh thyme-6.25G(.5%)
bay leaves-5G(.4%)
cure #2-3.2G(.25%)
fresh grated nutmeg-2.5G(.2%)

Spice mixture was ground up in mini food processor. It was then rubbed into the jowls. The jowls were placed in a ziploc bag with all the spice mixture added and shaken up to coat well. The bag was placed in the refrigerator where they will cure for about a week.
