  • 5 pinches salt

  • 1 pork rind


<ol> <li>Unwrap the pork skin and place it on a plate in the fridge. Leave it overnight to dry.</li> <li>The following day, preheat the oven to 140C/Gas Mark 1-2.</li> <li>Put the pork skin on a baking sheet and salt it generously, rubbing the salt into the skin.</li> <li>Bake it in the preheated oven for a good 1.5 hours until thoroughly crisp and the deepest amber gold in colour.</li> <li>Turn over and cook the other side.
