What's the difference between pork scratchings, pork crackling and pork crunch / pork rind? November 13, 2018 18:24

In simple terms:

  • Pork Scratchings are cooked once and therefore more traditional and harder.
  • Pork Crackling is cooked twice meaning you get a crunch you want but not to the deteriment of your teeth. The second cook lightens the edge of the pork meaning it puffs a little and holds more flavour. 
  • and Pork Rind / Pork Crunch is also cooked twice but at a higher temperature, creating a meaty quaver looking thing that's light and fluffy and full of flavour.
