    Crispy Pork Cracklin

    Ingredients (serves 6)
    24cm piece of pork rind
    2 tablespoons olive oil
    1 to 2 tablespoons sea salt or table salt
    Method
    Preheat oven to 220°C
    Place crackling rind-side up onto a rack over a shallow baking dish. Brush well with oil. Sprinkle generously with salt.
    Roast for 40 to 50 minutes, or until small bubbles form on surface and rind is golden and crisp. Cool for 5 minutes, then cut into pieces with kitchen scissors.

      Pre heat the oven to 375 season the cracklings with your preference place on cookie sheet and bake for 7 min. turn over cook additional 7 min. turn again cook another 5 min .

  2. Sharon says

    We use to just scrape off as much of the fat as possible and put them on a baking sheet and in a 350 oven for about 10-15 min. Salt as soon while they’re hot.

  3. Anne says

    I totally agree with the second method from Sharon. I have tried to leave the rind on before, but it does not really crisp enough and is very hard to bite into and chew.
