Hello again
Another piggy question. This obviously refers to the breastbone, but does affranchi just mean removed? And I don't get the 3 cm bit at all. Is it just the width of the bone in the meat?

I understand that the sternum has been carved out leaving a clean 3cm hollow in the length of the breast
