So, what is couenne?

Couenne, also known as pork rind or pig skin, is a popular ingredient in many cuisines around the world. It is a layer of skin that is removed from the pig and can be either boiled or fried until crispy. Couenne is commonly used as a garnish or topping for dishes such as soups, stews, and salads, providing a savory crunch and enhancing the flavor of the dish. It is also often used in the production of charcuterie, particularly sausages and pâtÊs, where it acts as a natural casing. Additionally, couenne can be rendered down to produce pork fat, which is used in many traditional recipes. Whether used as a crunchy snack or a versatile cooking ingredient, couenne adds a deliciously unique flavor and texture to any dish.
