Good Afternoon folks from rainy Pennsylvania. Was watching rerun of "dirty jobs" where they were making cracklings down I believe in Louisiana. Pretty interesting to a dumb mechanic like me. Anyone else here like this treat beside my southern friends?

Thanks in advance

BBQ are okay but i try to avoid empty calories that add sodium to my diet... leaves me more margin to eat other things.

I grew up familiar with cracklins as a byproduct of making home-made lard the old-fashioned way in Kentucky. I didn't approve of them even when I was 10, but relatives did. Old-timers would also boil sow-belly (skin) with their dried beans for "seasoning." Yuck!
