Pork Cracklings

Pork Skins reserved from stock

½ cup Salt

½ cup Black pepper

1 cup Fennel Seeds toasted

Corn Starch


Grind the Fennel Seeds, Salt, and Black Pepper together to create a fine powder. Lay Skins out to dry on a wire rack with a sheet pan underneath. Once dry sprinkle with seasonings and let dry out and cure. Cut into strips and toss in corn starch before frying at 350 degrees until golden brown. Season to taste with salt after frying, and serve.
