CRISPY PORK CRACKLE

To cook the crispiest crackling, there are three things you need: 1. oil 2. salt 3. heat.
  • • Preheat oven to 220°C.
  • • Pat the surface of the rind dry with paper towel.
  • • Use a small sharp knife to score the rind finely – or ask our Mighty Nice butchers to do this for you.
  • • Rub a little oil and salt well into the scored rind.
  • • Cook for 20 minutes at 220°C (this will begin the crackling process), then turn down to 180°C and cook for 45 minutes per kg.
  • • Rest for 5-10 minutes and enjoy
  • Merry Christmas!
