Where can I buy real pork rinds, like this picture, online?

I live in the middle of nowhere so there are no cool food stores. Is there anywhere online where I can buy REAL pork rinds like these?

I don't like the weird cheesepuffs-looking ones. alt text

regular bits of hard, crunchy chicharon. depends on the size of the piece some might be harder some softer; its delicious!

Whoa, really? Does it come out hard like the real ones, where if you bite it, it snaps in half really hard like old gingerbread cookies? Or do they come out puffy or chewy? Thanks.

Like I said I live in the middle of no where. We have no immigrant population at all, let alone markets. If you find some places online please let me know :-D

We don't always find the skin so you can do the same to the fattiest fat bits and pork ribs, in fact I'm not sure the last time I actually used the actual skin. It is yummy!

Yeah, my mom used to make it when my family killed the pigs, in pots as wide as a barrel full of lard. It's just now I can't find anyone to sell me raw pork skin. The pig farmers around here say they don't sell it.

You can make them easily in a pressure cooker (I was taught by a latina)

remove the pressure spout on the top of the pressure cooker (the thingy that regulates the pressure by spewing hot air out)

put your pork fat (works great on pork ribs too with lots of fat)...in with a 'drop' of oil.....nothing more

put the lid on it and cook for 20 minutes, check....keep cooking if needed (I know, sounds dangerous, but thats how they make them in their homes)

this is how they make 'chicharon'
