There are many ways to make pork crackling. There is much debate of what is the proper way. Well this is the way I was taught & I am not disappointed whatsoever. I'm sure you won't be either. Enjoy😊
Make slits all around the pork.
Like I did.
Do the bottom as well. Do not cut all the way through.
In a bowl add enough water to immerse the pork. Add alot of salt.
Let this sit for about an hour or two.
In a pot over medium heat, boil enough water to fully submerge the pork.
The cracklings is frying . Add some salt. While in this stage it will get stuck and it will start popping. This is normal and messy. Be wary .😁
