PAT - Traditional Agri-Foodstuffs

Salted and spiced pork rinds, rolled and tied with string.

  • Processing Method: Cut a stripe of pork rind and flavor it with salt, pepper, aromas, and particular pickling, according to the recipe of the local grocer or butcher. Roll it and tie it with the special string. It is eaten after boiling it, usually with beans (in a terracotta pot called "tufeja").
