Pork scratchings.

  • In the US, Pork scratchings are called Pork rind, in Australia, it’s pork crackle
  • George Dubya said that pork rinds were his favorite snack (bet they loved him for than in Iraq)
  • Generally considered the most unhealthy food (no shit!)
  • Pork scratchings originated as solid scraps, a by-product left over during the process of rendering pork fat down into (liquid) lard
  • Sometimes the fine layer of hair is removed from the skin by burning; however this is not completely effective and some pieces still have the hair attached
