palette fumée

Palette fumée is salted and smoked pork shoulder (or butt).

Usually sold vacuum packed, without the bone (palette fumée désossée), it’s an important ingredient in a choucroute garnie, but often it’s just cooked or baked on its own with potatoes.

In Alsace Lorraine they salt and smoke palette to make Schieffala and serve it with raves salées or sauerkraut and potatoes.
