Cracklins are a great pork Cajun snack, and goes wonderful with boudin,
or cush cush. I personally love it with just
Cajun Boudin and it makes a meal
- Pork meat with fat attached
- Oil for frying
- Salt and pepper (red
and black) to taste
- Cut pork into 2-inch squares. You should cut for skin, fat, and meat
on each square.
- Place the pork squares in a hot iron pot. Do not
overcrowd the pieces.
- Add about 4 inches of oil making sure all pieces
are covered with the oil.
- Cook over high heat until cracklings
(pork squares) are browned and floating to top. Stir constantly to keep
the pork cracklings from sticking and burning.
- Remove from grease
with strainer and pour out onto absorbent paper towels. Salt and pepper
the cracklings while hot.
- Store in a tightly closed container.
