Learning how to cook roast pork with crackling for a family dinner or a casual dinner party is a great skill to have.
Firstly - you need to make sure that you have a good layer of fat under the skin of your pork.
Secondly you need to make sure the skin is dried out. To do this, a few hours before you cook it, take it out of its packaging, dry it off with a paper towel, and put it on a plate, uncovered back in the fridge for a couple of hours or more.
Once you have scored the skin and right before you put the joint in the oven, you need to sprinkle it with a lot of salt. And by a lot, I mean at least 1 tablespoon of salt. More if you are ok with it being salty.
A roast pork dinner is one of my favorite family meals. It is easy to prepare, delicious to eat and everybody loves it!
