Notes

When looking for pork belly, it’s best to choose a cut that doesn’t include the skin. You can ask your butcher for what’s what. If you end up getting a cut with the skin, you can cut it off like you would chicken skin. It’s a bit harder to separate but worth it. I don’t enjoy keto popcorn with the skin on, I feel like it downgrades the flavor and makes it challenging to eat.
