Carol’s Perfect Crispy Crackling

TRH Carol's Perfect Crispy Crackling2

Nothing is better than perfectly crisp Pork Crackling.
How to achieve it, well, It’s easy!

When you buy your Pork look for pork which has a layer of fat underneath the skin (this) produces the best crackling.
TRH Carol's Perfect Crispy CracklingIt has to be thinly scored, for this, I actually use a Stanley Knife and woe betide anyone who uses it for D.I.Y.
The piece of Pork I have pictured is a piece of Belly Pork approx 2 kilos and we scored it and then rolled it.
Right let’s go, Heat oven and set to 250C.
Next, take a small amount of oil and rub into the skin.
Then generously salt the skin making sure you rub it well into the fat.
( The specs) you notice on mine is sage as we always add herbs to ours.
But just salt is fine.
Put in very hot oven until skin starts to blister up.
If you tap with a knife you can hear it or once you get used to it you can see it blistering up.
But keep an eye on it ( as my pic) below shows I took my eye of the ball and burnt the edges.
Reduce heat of the oven to about 170 degrees for the remainder of cooking time which depends on the size and cut off your pork. Pork loin cooks quicker.
You should now have a lovely piece of Pork with crispy crackling and lovely melt in your mouth pork.

I have a passion to cook and experiment, and have gathered recipes for almost 50+ years (paper and then electronic). I felt it an absolute waste to just toss all those wonderful recipes in the garbage and forget about them, thus decided to put them to good use and started “The Recipe Hunter” Facebook page: The Recipe Hunter (Cook &Enjoy) and the Blog
