What are pork rinds? I've heard them mentioned so many times on this group
but still haven't a clue what they are or where you buy them from in the UK.
Thank you,
Denise

Fried pork skin.

I don't get to help much because I'm still new to all this but that was an
easy one.

In the UK, you can sometimes get them as 'bacon flavour puffs' from
Superdrug, or find 'pork scratchings' in a supermarket or pub.

They are the skin of a pig fried to utter crispness in grease. They
are quiet puffy and light, although some varieties such as cracklin's
are heavier and more substantial. In Hispanic countries they're
called "chicharrones." I know you have them in Great Britain, but
maybe just in the countryside. I work with a guy from Shropshire
(sorry if spelling is off) and I offered him some of my store-bought
pork rinds. He said, "Um...no thanks...my grandfather used to make
those when he slaughtered a pig and I didn't like them then..." I
think most countries where pork is eaten have some variation of them.
They have always been very popular in mostly the southern and
southwestern parts of the US but almost unheard of in the northeast
where I am until relatively recently.

I actually prefer the harder kind. Does anyone know how to get them this way?

I had no idea that I could consider 'pork scratchings' a suitable food for
dieters! I have seen them in pubs but haven't tried them.
Thank you for the enlightening replies,
All the best,
Denise

Deep fried crispy pork skins. Chicarones in Spanish. Available
anywhere that has Hispanic items. May be near the munchy snacks
elsewhere.

Maybe they are named pork cracklings in the UK. Pork outards
not pork inards.

I saw a web site that sells microwave pork rinds. Has anyone tried them.
Wasn't it GW Bush Sr who loved them?

That's the only kind I use. I like the hot and spicy ones.
