    My first crack at Cracklin's, Pork Rinds would be closer but I like Cracklin's OK!

    Well that's what I'm calling 'em anyway


    Chicharrones, Torreznos, Chicharro, Khaep mu, Pork Scratchings, Grattons, Cortezas de cerdo, Cueritos, Scrunchions, Pork rinds...whatever...

    This is something I need to work on.

    I was just experimenting here and did not check oil temp or anything, yes it was playtime.

    Sorry for the bad camera shots frying, It was a bit awkward videoing with a camera and frying at the same time.

    They look good but taste is another issue, I was unhappy with the taste but the texture is awesome.

    I screwed up when boiling the skins, I added a few tablespoons of salt as I read somewhere you really need to spice them up because they are bland???

    oh well,

    I 'm gonna save my skins and try making pig skin popcorn, I think my oil may have been too hot too, they seemed to fry up too quick.

    They're edible but I expected more!

    In your thread what do you mean the fat goes in the fire, nothing goes to waste?

    My son likes em... go figure

    Maybe when I make these again and have better success, I'll post a very very long thread for you, thanks for the compliment.

    That is how I make mine. I use an oven to dry them and instead of cutting the fat off after boiling I use a spoon. Either way works well, just personal preference.

    Great job on the video. I will have to show my daughter and get her working on one for me. She does video production in High School........
  8. Good idea on getting you Daughter working on a video. Who wants to see a Qview when you can have video.

    Happy smoken.
