Tried to make the loaf without the pancetta. I think it really needed the fatty taste of pork on top, since the loaf was not as tasty as I would have liked. The cranberries were very sour and did not incorporate well into the recipe at all, and this is saying something since I love sour things and love them in recipes. I would recommend celery in place of the green beans and sweetened dried cranberries in place of the fresh.
