I bought some salted pig jowl.

At the nearby Mexican market.

I was thinking at first about using it for a substitute for guiancale in a pasta carbonara but it's obviously missing the cure found in the Italian version. So I'm probably just going to make a pot of beans with it.

Anybody have experience with jowls?
