ok here are the ingredients i used.
pork skins with a thin layer of fat.
spice mix 2 tablespoons kosher salt (if i had smoked salt i would have used it)
4 tablespoons sugar ( just a little to much)
2 teaspoons cayenne (home grown dried then ground with seeds a little more would be ok for my taste)
1 tablespoon smoked parprika ( if you don't have smoked then use what you have. it will be fine)
if you mix it up a few days in advance. the flavors will bloom for better flavor.
you can use about anything you like, they are good plain also.
for the pig skins place in stock pot, cover with water, bring to boil for 2 hours. until very soft and able to tear easily.
turn off pot and let cool for half hour.
remove from water and lay on cooling rack, skin side down, place in fridge for 2 hours.
remove skin from rack and scrape off as much fat as possable ( a spoon works well for this, the more fat you remove the crispier they will be.)
once all the fat is removed. cut or tear into small pieces. ( a pizza cutter works well for this)
i use a dehirator but you can use an oven to dry. you can't over dry. they will feel rock hard and inedible when done
to cook bring your oil up to 390 deg.( your not far from the flash point so watch the temp close)
drop a few into the oil, hold under the oil with a small pan or what ever you have. cook for about 60 sec. don't over cook.they will puff up and look great.
remove from oil and season as soon as they come out of the oil. (put a lot more seasoning on than you think you need).
yum yum they are good. if you smoked the skins some that would also add to the taste.
hope you enjoy.
