HISTORY OF PORK CRACKLE
The general consensus of opinion is that they originated in the West Midlands or Black Country as it is sometimes called because of the areas roots in the industrial revolution and continuing role as a centre of heavy engineering and mining which in days gone by was said to cover the area in grime & soot.
Pork Scratching was a food of the working classes with origins back to the 1800's where families kept their own pigs at home, feeding them up for slaughter. With food scarce no part of the pig was wasted and either by design or trial & error the famous Pork Scratchings was discovered.
