Pork crackling Recipe

Ingredients for people

  • Pork skin : 500 g

    Preheat the oven to 220'C.

    Score the skin with a sharp knife in a criss cross pattern.

    Rub the salt into all the score marks. The salt draws moisture out which allows better crackling.
    Leave for 15 minutes.

    Place on a rack in a baking tray and cook in the oven for 10 minutes before reducing the temperature to 160'C. Cook for a further 30 minutes or until the crackling is golden brown and crisp.
