How to make the Perfect Crackling
My perfect crackling tip – simply boil the kettle, poor hot water over the rind and place into pre heated oven. Perfect every time!
Thank you to Swannington for taking the time to chat with us and share that amazing crackling tip. I’m sure I’m not the only one planning Roast Pork for Mothering Sunday!
