So, what is schwarten?

Schwarten is a German culinary term that refers to the pork rind or skin, which is a popular ingredient in traditional dishes throughout Europe. This crispy and flavorful ingredient is obtained by boiling and then frying the pork skin until it becomes golden-brown and crunchy. Schwarten is commonly used as a topping for soups and stews, or as a snack on its own. It is also frequently added to sausages and other meat products as a binding agent. With its unique texture and rich flavor, schwarten adds a delicious crunch and depth of flavor to any dish.
