So, If you have been here before, you will know that we sometimes (often) use Morrison's Pork Rind to make our homemade pork scratchings. It's really easy to get your hands on (well, if you live near a Morrison's supermarket), it's raw, and sometimes it's ready scored.
Simply put, all you need to do is unwrap it, cut it up and cook it. It's perfect for making pork scratchings at home in the oven or frying pan. If you really want to make sure that you do the best for the rind you buy and make really great pork scratchings, you should look at our method/recipe that can be found here.
Making pork scratchings is simple, but like with all cooking (even making toast), there are a few hints and tips that you may find useful. These can help you avoid common pitfalls. But, if you can't be bothered to read the whole method, then why not take a quick look at our simple top 11 cooking tips for making pork scratchings.
Morrison's supermarket raw pork rind is cheap and often reduced in price!
Morrison's Pork Rind rarely costs more than £1.00 for a big rolled-up piece. This is more than enough raw pork rind to make some scratchings for one session. Seriously, you probably wouldn't eat all that you cook in one sitting (but we may be wrong!).
The other thing that's good about Morrison's Pork Rind is that because it's a fairly niche product, it's often reduced. If you look at our Instagram feed, you will see that we often manage to pick it up for next to nothing. Because it's near to its best before date, we often freeze it for use at a later date. You can't buy it online via Morrison's website.
