  3. To make the crispy pork you do the following……
  4. ‘Shave’ the pork skin by running a sharp knife over the skin and removing any extra hair/skin etc. Video here: http://youtu.be/qwwoQb2e0Lo
  5. Cut it into large manageable chunks. Put salt on the skin and out in the fridge uncovered over night to dry out
  6. Take the pork out of the fridge and put sale and vinegar on the skin. Prick with a fork all over to encourage the vinegar to ‘sink in’. Put to one side for 1 hour
  7. Dry the skin out and put in deep fryer on a medium heat.  Dropping the pork in here: http://youtu.be/FudrIlsGPls
