Pork Crackling! A favourite in our house, and certainly a table pleaser for our Family Xmas this year. Its such a treat isn’t it, that salty delicious crunch, yum!
A few months back, my partner got an “accidental” txt off a lady trying to get her Garlic Salts to a customer. He responded that she had the wrong person, she was ever so grateful he replied and Insisted she send us her Garlic Salts, Straight from Weyhill Farm.
Being the foodies that we are, we had no problems accepting her generous offer.
Julie and Stewart are passionate Garlic growers from Gippsland, selling there garlic bulbs at the farmers market of a weekend, they have also created easy seasoning’s that complement any dish. Which lead us to wanting to try there Salts this Xmas.
We normally stick to our asian inspired dishes, especially a good Caramelised Pork Belly, but this time we went all out and roasted a Pork Loin. Adding Julie & Stewarts Lemon Salt’s to complement our Macadamia & Apricot stuffing w’ orange Zest is was a real hit! And the Crackling OMG!! Wow!!
Crackling is the easiest thing to achieve, literally smother your Pork Belly or Loin with a very generous amount of oil and Salt, and place in the over for approx 2 hrs. depending on the size. Keep an eye on it, and rotate if required. Until you see the blistering brown crackling! Done!
