If we say the duck is a well-known specialty of Nanjing, Nanjing Pigskin Noodles are a hidden delicacy of this ancient city. Boil water over high heat. Add noodles into the boiling water. The noodles quickly roll up and down in the water. Sprinkle some topping vegetables onto the noodles and the noodles rise to the surface. Pour noodles and soup into a big white porcelain bowl.
The pigskin is a decisive factor in determining if the noodles are authentic. The skin on the back of the pig is the best for cooking the pigskin noodles. After the pigskin is cleaned and sun-dried, fry it in hot oil. The dried pigskin swells little by little in the hot oil, and many pores are formed inside the pigskin, which becomes the essence of authentic pigskin noodles. To make it authentic, the pigskin must be crisp enough. The pigskin pieces are half-soaked with soup. Take a bite and the bubbles all burst immediately in your mouth with a strong fragrance. Have a piece of pigskin and you will love it.
