Homemade Keto Snack of Crispy Pork Crackling Bites

These Homemade Keto Snacks of Crispy Pork Crackling Cubes are probably unknown to many North American people, or this food is just a special or strange, weird dish and it is categorized as “acquired taste.” In Central and Eastern Europe, we call this dish “töpörtyű” vagy “tepertő” and one of our most popular delicacies.  At most, only vegetarians and fat-deniers don’t eat this. You can make belly bacon by frying it together with the pork skin, it will be even crispier. The most delicious is a Crackling when it is fried in large quantities, cut into larger cubes at once, in a cauldron and remains crispy.
It is eaten in the most popular form with salt and red onion, but it is also used to make Crackling Cream or Scones with Crackling.

This delicacy you can also make at home, not only from pork belly bacon, but even from duck, chicken or goose fat and skin, or from the fat of any animal.  The fat released in the fry time is the oldest and most natural fat, and also the tastiest.  In most places in the world, the animal fat is cooked, then the boiled water is cooled and the melted, then cooled fat left on top is removed to use.  The fat thus obtained does not have as delicate aroma and taste as fried fat.  In addition, there are no crispy crackling bits left either. 

From 10 kg of fatty bacon, 5 to 6 kg of fat and 1.5 to 2 kilograms of crumb can be obtained. Flesher bacon will have less fat and slightly more crumbs. This time, I only baked ourselves a little snack for dinner from a smaller quantity (2 kg) and meaty pork belly bacon. I got over 500g of beautiful white, fragrant, tasty fat and almost 600g of crackling bites.10

    Cook slowly for about 40 minutes and stir occasionally, but as the cubes bake, stir more and more densely. Keep the temperature of the fat at 70-80 degrees Celsius, (do not boil).

    Step 4

    When the cubes start to blush, raise the temperature higher under the pan and begin to toast the crackers while stirring. When browned, pour off most of the fat. Beware of hot grease can cause burns!

    Step 5

    Add the milk. The fat with the milk will effervesce, be careful with it! Fry the crumb for a few more minutes until golden brown.

    Step 6

    Then filter the finished crackling cubes. Excess fat should be squeezed out of the cubes. This will make the crackling bits drier, more snappy, crisper.

    Step 7

    Put the fat in the refrigerator and use it for cooking. Cruclings bits are excellent treats in hot or cold with salt and red onion.
