  1. Preheat the oven to 250 F (120 C).  Some ovens may not go this low. In that case, the oven should be put as low as possible and the oven door will be left open a crack.
  2. Remove all the fat from the skin with a very sharp knife. Only the transparent skin should be left.
  3. Pat dry both sides and cut into smaller 1-inch square pieces.
  4. Completely cover the pieces with the salt and spices of your choice.
  5. Place pieces on a cooling rack over a tray and set in the oven for 2 hours.
  6. Remove the tray from the oven and transfer the dried-out pieces onto a clean tray.
  7. Increase the oven temperature to 440°F (230°C). Once at temperature, move the pieces to the oven and cook for 5-10 minutes. The pieces should pop.
  8. Remove from oven. Allow pieces to cool completely. Store in a sealed container.
  9. Makes approx. 30-50 pieces.
