We just love our butcher here in Berkshire … He hooked me up with some pork skin, so I did the obvious thing … Be sure to use a very sharp knife and work carefully when you slide away the fat.

Instructions
  1. Preheat the oven to 55°C / 130°F.
  2. Use a very sharp knife to remove as much fat as possible from the skin. Use gloves for a better grip and always slice away from you. (You can leave a small layer of fat, but I prefer it with little or no fat at all and when I was done, I was left with a very thin layer of skin which was practically transparent.)
  3. Pat dry with kitchen paper and slice into pieces approx. 1 x 5cm in size. Scatter salt evenly over the pieces and place on a grill or cooling rack set over a tray. Place in the oven for 2 hours.
  4. Remove the tray from the oven and transfer the pieces onto a clean tray. Crank up the oven to max 230°C. Once at temperature, place the tray into the oven and cook for 5-10 minutes – you will see them swell and pop.
  5. Remove the tray from the oven and allow to cool completely. Lush!

Recipe Notes

It's tricky to calculate accurate macros with pork scratchings, as everyone will remove different amounts of fat. The good thing is that the carb count will remain at zero no matter how much fat you leave on. For best results, remove as much fat as you possibly can to ensure maximum PUFF!

*Note for US readers: The recipes on this site show the carbohydrates which should be counted on keto (in this case: it's 0g). Here in the UK, our nutritional breakdown information displays a carbohydrate count that has already had the dietary fibre subtracted (and displayed separately) - and it’s indicated this way throughout the site. In short, you need not subtract anything further.
