My mother and grandmother were both Texas country cooks. We had cornbread several times a week. Regular, hoe cakes, Mexican, cracklin, hush puppies and bacon and cheese style corn bread. I was raised on my grandfather's dairy. My dad worked there for a while and we didn't have a lot of money. We had cornbread and red beans for supper almost everyday. We also had plenty of beef along with fried potatoes. Nobody ever went hungry! :texas:

The 'cracklins' that I referred to are always MINCED, not in 'pork-rind' shape. They're just the right size to get stuck between your teeth... :lol: My guess is they're about a 1/4 inch square or less. As I said in the first post, after they're seasoned and dried, she minces them, so small is the size you're looking for.
She sometimes set that she makes a 'hurry-up' cornbread when her husband is looking hungry, and she uses the cornbread/muffin box mix...and then she sprinkles in some of the cracklins into the mix and bakes it all.

Next time, I'll get pix and I'll ask how she does them.
