in a smallish quantity (just enough to go with Sunday lunch) as oh doesn't like it and neither does my lo so it's a waste to buy a jar as it ends up going off in-between us having proper sunday roasts. thanks smile

Stew some apple with a little water until it goes mushy, add some butter, Bob's your uncle.

lily, i never end up with crispy crackling! no idea how to make it go crispy, just gets served up as it is usually n if it isn't liked then its tough

Score fat with sharp knive to obtain deep cuts in fat

Dry fat with paper towel during the day replacing every so often when absorb the water.

Pat dry, shake salt over and place in very hot oven for 30 mins

Turn down oven for rest of cooking

High heat for last 30 mins to blast crackling

OOOh will try that one.

Anthony worral gingery weasel also recommends boiling water as it "contracts" the fat hmm
