OK you guys - I'm gonna say this once and once only -- I've said it before but I'll say it again - only 'cos it's you Roz.
I bought Pork Krackles made by Gold Medal Snack Foods (02) 9725-4855 - they'll tell you where you can get them in Brisbane or Melbourtne - they are available!! I got some there last month Roz. And definitely available in Melbourne too Joypod. These ones are 0 yes zero carbs - can't be all bad!
A few thoughts:
1) Watch out for the Asian Grocer ones - many have high sugar content!!
2) I have recipe for make your own - I bellieve BiLo sells the pork skin pretty cheap.
3) My local shopping centre sells real pork crackling at one of the chicken places - already cooked - YUMMO
4) I hate the Pork Krackles by themselves (I gag onthem and get indigestion) but to use as a dip, or as a base for nachos, or in meatloaf, or a a breading coating or for that real fake pizza base they are great - YUMMO!
Do it yourself recipe from good old Women's Weekly
Crunchy pork crackling
To make crunchy pork crackling, cook the rind separately from the meat. Cut the rind from the meat with a small, sharp knife and place it in a shallow baking dish; brush rind with one tablespoon of vegetable oil and rub with one tablespoon of coarse cooking salt. Bake, uncovered, in a very hot oven for about 40 minutes or until rind browns and crackles. Drain on absorbent paper.
Gook luck let me know how your search goes.
