Re: perfect pork cracklin
It is important to preheat your oven to set the crackling.
If your butcher has not done it for you, score the fat with a sharp knife.
Brush the pork fat with olive oil and salt, add rosemary or other herbs into the slices if desired. Place the pork into a very hot oven until crackling sets, then turn down to cook through, if too much colour on top of the roast just cover loosely with some tin foil.
I like to cook my pork on some onion, fresh ginger, segmented oranges and zest, lime and chili. Baste sides of roast during cooking. Pour over some honey 1/2 hour before cooking time finishes.
