No one can resist a piece of freshly made pork crackling . . . but perfect crackling isn’t just for Sunday roasts – ask you butcher for a piece of pork skin and make these scratchings for a tasty snack or party nibble or to garnish any pork dish.
Try mixing the salt with spices, cayenne pepper or herbs for an extra flavour kick.
