    I think they're great but I can only buy them in packets in supermarkets. Butchers north of the border don't seem to make them!

    I like the crunchy ones but I hate the gopping pieces of fat you sometimes get on the larger bits.
    I like them 'sanitised' scratchings best that are a bit like scratching flavoured quavers.

    No I don't eat them, they remind me of the horrible toe-nails on some of my elderly patients! Yuk!!

    I love them. I usually buy pork skin from Morrisons and make my own

    I'm struggling to come up with a response other than


    And?!?!?!? :confused: :confused:

    What are you after? A medal for eating them or a chest to pin it on?

    How about yes or no? Relatively simple question you'd think.

    I don't eat them Ian. I'd be interested to know how to make fresh ones though. Is it a simple case of frying pork skin or does the perfect pork scratching require a little more effort?

    sorry, my response to the question was lost in wondering what the point of asking the question in the first place was!


    still, it takes all sorts I suppose.

    yes.

    After this thread I'm thinking the sausage one is almost stimulating!
