Legnon's Boucherie - New Iberia, LA

A boat load of craklins at Legnon's in New Iberia.
 --- Legnon's Boucherie is, perhaps, the finest meat shop in New Iberia.  Fresh meats of all varieties are served to the throngs of waiting customers who queue up with a number in hand.  Their small bags of cracklin sit in a carved piece of wood resembling a pirogue.  They're not warm and they're not meaty, but they have a certain pure pork flavor that is sometimes muddled in other gratons.  The crunch is absolutely perfect.  The seasoning is really salty and lacks any additional spices.  So, in that respect, the seasoning is rather one dimensional.  For a little bag of cracklin to take with you on the road though, Legnon's will not disappoint.

They spell it "Cracklings."  How do you spell it?

  1. This dish has been the most demanding food item that everyone has been looking to eat most of the time. Literally I also like to eat it but the recipe seems to be different from one I am having.
