This was my first attempt to see if it was possible to shallow fry pork crackling in a frying pan, and to see if it was a good idea. I tried this method a few years ago, but was so disappointed with the results, I decided not to publish them. However, now, with a bit of time on my hands, I notices these images in a folder and decided that it can't hurt to show people the right way, and the wrong way.
This method is NOT the right way to do it, but we thought it would be a good idea to show you anyway.
If you are looking for the best method to cook pork crackling in a frying pan, then why not have a look at the 2nd method we tried. It was a total sucess, the crackling was crispy and crunch and easy to make.

Because this first method was such a failure, let's just say... buy the rind, cut it up and fry it!
