What should I do with pork skin?

Answered on August 19, 2014

I'm cooking up some pulled pork today from this recipe. I've made it a few times already and love it, so I figured I'd go whole hog (so to speak) and get the biggest pork shoulder I could. The one I found is about 10 pounds and includes plenty of skin and bone in it. I plan on cooking it whole and I should have plenty of skin leftover, so what should I do with it? Add it into the pulled pork? Fry it up and make my own chicharones? Any ideas?

Good suggestion. Might have to try that next time, it's too late for this one.

+1 for a possible way to make primal/paleo taco shells!

Will they still fry up after so much of the fat has rendered while cooking the pulled pork?

Make cueritos. When my family slaughters a pig to make carnitas, the skin would be rendered for the fat (in a copper cauldron) then cut into strips and marinated with lemon and chili (Tapatio is what we used) - and salt to taste. eHow has a recipe: http://www.ehow.com/how_2176059_make-cueritos.html

My mouth is now watering.

See if there is a way to dry them crispy in a pocket/taco shape and put the pulled pork in them to eat. Sounds delicious to me. Don't know if its possible but sounds good. HA!

Put them in the slow cooker with the bones and gristle and stuff. Delicious.

I do like these other suggestion, they're crunchy. But the slow cooker scores points for simplicity.
