Pork Rinds (Fried Pork Fat)
1 pound pork fat
3 cups water
1 cup extra virgin olive oil
2 tablespoons of fine salt
2 tablespoons fine ground garlic
1 tablespoon onion powder

The first thing you will need to do, is go down to your local butcher, and
pick up 1 pound of fresh pork fat. You can use more than a pound if you 
prefer. The pork fat should be cut up into thin slices, no more than about
1 inch square. You will then want to take out a non stick skillet. Any 
skillet that is worn and tends to get food stuck to it, is going to cause 
you problems with this recipe. We use a Teflon coated skillet, which gets 
the job done well. You will want to preheat the skillet to high, with the 
extra virgin olive oil. Olive oil has an extremely high burning point, 
which makes it great for this recipe. Once the skillet is thoroughly 
heated, begin placing the precut pork pieces into the burning hot oil, and
cook them until crisp. Cooking time will vary, depending on the pork fat 
sizes. Season the fat pieces both before and after you deep fry it.
