The last time I went to the Somerville Winter Market (FYI – there are 2 more Saturdays before it’s over for the year!) I was lucky enough to find Pork Jowl at the Austin Brothers Farm stand. I have a history with Austin Brothers, I actually drove out to their farm in Belchertown, MA to buy pork belly when I made my own panchetta. I knew I had to buy the jowl and figure out what to do with it later. Don’t you love impulse buys? A craving for pork buns a few days later was all I needed to get going with this recipe.
