  • Pork Rinds

    I notice my dad eating these the other day and giving them to his
    little doggies. It got me thinking so I read the bag ingredients.
    Pork skin and salt. Doesn't say fried in any bad oils. Hmm.
    Could I eat these occasionally? I know the salt is probably
    to high, but I am just talking a handful now and then.

    I'm sure if a person searched the web there may be some
    good on-line sources of some ranged fed, low salt brands?

    What's your thoughts?

    I do, and I love em, especially with mayo and hot sauce.

    I find mine at Aldi, the dollar store and Tops. Just watch the ingredients. Flavored ones have all kinds of crap added to them.

      Porkrinds are awesome! We buy them whenever we can. They're quite scarce around here, and people always look at us strange when we have 1/2 dozen bags and nothing else to buy...

        Where does your father buy pork rinds? Where do you buy them Diana? Anyone else?

        I would like to try some!
        Find me at aToadontheRoad.com. Cheers!

          Pork rinds by themselves make me gag - can't stand the smell. But I do my best to shut my nose, and I grind up a couple of bags and put them in a ziplock in the freezer. They make a fabulous "breading" for fish, chicken strips, and as a binder in things like meatloaf, fish cakes, on and on. Very good, even though I can't stand them by themslves.

            Try them with avacado & hot sauce.

                  Aldi? In the States? I thought they were only in Germany. Who knew. And I didn't think to to use ground up pork rinds as breading. Gonna try that next time with chicken strips.

                    Well, that settles that then. Never expected so many to answer so fast.
                    For many years the medcos instilled in my head they were bad for us.
                    But I just had a primal realization to ask about them. Thanks all.
                    And thanks for the ideas. I like the breading idea myself.

                      Curious about your mayo choice.

                        Just to induce envy in one and all, I have a batch in the oven right now. And the remaining 10 lbs of brined pork belly is in my smoker. *flips bird at CW*

                              I made some chicarrones today, which is like pork rinds but with attached meat. Took a couple of pounds of pork belly and rendered the crap outta them! Delicious pork nuggets just for me! And bonus, I have some delicious pork lard to cook in. Double win! If you have any asian grocery stores near you, they usually have the nice big cuts of pork belly and they are cheaper than in the other grocery stores. Sometimes you can find just the pig skin/fat and you can make regular pork rinds. It's easier than you might think - put the skin in the bottom of a heavy pot, put enough water on to cover the skin, turn on low for several hours. The water will evaporate and the fat will render out. Obviously to have pork rinds around to snack on, this isn't the most efficient method, but it's definitely good for making lard and having the rinds as a bonus snack.
