How to make a pork roast with crackling

Our top tip for perfect crackling is to leave the pork uncovered on a rack set over a plate in the fridge overnight to allow rind to dry out. On day of cooking, take the pork out of the fridge; set rack over the sink and pour a jug of boiling water over the rind – thoroughly pat dry with paper towel and proceed as instructed in the recipe.
