Frequently Asked Questions

Q: How long of a shelf life do microwaveable pork rinds have ?
A: They can be stored dry for up to 1 year. Keeping them in your cabinet is the best choice. It is best to only cook as many as you think that you will eat at a time. They all taste the best the fresher they are.

Q: Do I have to use the brown bags to cook the pork rinds ?
A: It is possible to cook them between paper towels but, for the crunchiest and freshest taste, the small brown bags definitely work the best. This will also allow you to experiment with different seasonings that you may want to try.

Q: How long should I cook them for?
A: Your first couple of batches will be experimental until you learn the exact time that works for your microwave.   All ovens are different so there is not one "standard" time that works for all ovens.  To start with, put about 15 pieces in a small brown bag, lay it on it's side and shake it a bit to disperse the pieces evenly.  Put it in your microwave on high for 90 seconds. If you open the bag and the pieces have dark brown edges, it needs more time.  Simply close the bag, shake it around and return it to the microwave for an additional 30 seconds. This will allow you to determine the exact cooking time for your particular microwave.  Enjoy!!!
