Homemade Cracklings for Crackling Bread
by Alice Owens
(Fluvanna County, VA)
I grew up in rural Virginia, where we often had crackling bread. We did not have our own hogs but neighbors who did always shared.
Does anyone know how to create a similar "crackling" at home from pork fat/skin that would make this ole time bread?
From time to time I have purchased "cracklings" in a local grocery store, but they don't work. They are just hard and tasteless. the cracklings I remember seemed to melt in the cornbread...
Thanks in advance
