how to make pork cracklings

I found this method of how to make pork cracklings in the book with Cuban recipes. Cubans are very fond of pork. Cuban cuisine has many recipes for making pork.


  • 2 lbs pork rind or skin (remove most of the fat)
  • boiling water
  • 2 tbsp sea salt
  • 2 tbsp of olive oil.

Directions how to make pork cracklings:

Cut pork rind or skin into 1 1/2 inch squares. Using a colander, place pork rind or skin and pour boiling water to open skin. Dry and refrigerate for about 2 hrs.

Remove from the refrigerator and sprinkle with salt and rub it with the salt. Preheat oven to 200C/400F. Place pork rinds in the baking sheet side up. Brush rinds with olive oil and sprinkles with salt. Roast for about 20-30 mins.

Drain excess fat from the sheet and cook for another 20-30 mins, or until you see small bubbles forming on surface and rinds are crisp and golden.
