A Primal Snack More Addictive Than Crack!
Ok, well maybe that is an exaggeration because I hear that crack is indeed pretty addictive. And also it is pretty unhealthy for you where as this is perfectly primal but anyways…
… I give you Crackling!
Roger de Rok introduced me to this stuff and I can’t put it down. They have it available made fresh at our local Mexican Mercado style “Ranch Market” (it’s pretty much a big grocery store where everything is in Spanish and has really cool exotic foods).
So what is it?
My understanding is that Crackling is what is left over after rendering lard. Picture a pork rhine with a pad of butter stuck to the underside. That is crackling.
How is it primal?
It is pork fat… fried in its own pork fat. All natural, deliciously fatty and ready to go.
Crackling makes a truly awesome, truly primal snack. It is the perfect primal substitute for chips or popcorn. It is easy and delicious to eat straight by itself but I am absolutely dying to make some nachos or primal frito pie with it.
If you can’t find Crackling then pork rhines still make a pretty good primal snack by themselves but Crackling is the way to go!
Are you familiar with Crackling? Do you love this stuff as much as I do?
