I came across this recipe a few years ago when going through a box of old papers. Since we lived in the country in Oklahoma when I was a child, we had pigs, chickens, a garden, etc. so everything was made from scratch...and we wasted nothing. The original recipe called for fresh, fried pork skin pieces (yes, from a freshly slaughtered hog) and the grease that came from frying them. In an effort to make this recipe a slight bit healthier and less time consuming, I changed the cracklin fat and fresh cracklins to butter and store-bought cracklins that can be found in most grocery stores now. It is a taste of "the good old days." This picture is from the internet.
