    Crackling is...

    The crisp brown skin with a crisp layer of fat that is created when pork skins are cooked. Pork crackling or Chicharon as it is also known, is a popular food in the southern U.S., it is commonly served as a snack. Cracking is prepared by boiling the pork rind in water seasoned with a variety of spices. Another method of cooking is to deep-fry the rind and season to taste.
