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.
