Very good I really like it, where do you get the piggy skin from? I have tried everywhere. In the end I had to buy ham hocks and use the skin from them and the misses cooked the flesh for her pea soup ..... lol

You can get pig skin from Morrisons. It's sold as pork rind for crackling, already cleaned and shaved as well. I bought a pack last week with 5 sheets for 80p

Oh yeah, this is my first post since I only joined a couple of minutes ago to look at other peoples work on piggys :)
