Servings: 6

2 pounds pork rind or skin — trim most of the fat and discard

Cut pork rind into 2 inch squares. sprinkle with salt, spread on cookie sheet in one layer and bake in a 250°F oven for 3 hours.

Cool and set aside in covered jars until ready to use. When needed, pour oil to about ⅓ the depth of the pan. Heat 5 to 8 minutes on medium high heat.
