pork skin with fat
Cut pork fat and skins into 2-inch squares keeping the pork meat on the
square. You will see skin, fat, and meat. You can also cut smaller sections
into the fat if thick, but not all the
way through the skin.
Place the pork squares in a hot iron pot. Do not overcrowd the pieces. Add
about 4 inches of oil making sure all pieces are covered with the oil.
Cook over high heat until cracklins (pork squares) are browned and floating
to top. Stir constantly to keep the pork cracklins from sticking and
Remove from grease with strainer and pour out onto absorbent
paper towels. Salt and pepper the cracklins while hot. Store in a tight
closed covered container.
