  • Bring some water to a boil in a small saucepan. Add pork cracklings and boil until tender, 5 to 8 minutes. Drain, and reserve.

  • Meanwhile, beat egg in a bowl along with jalapeño pepper and buttermilk; stir in cracklings. Stir in cornmeal mixture until moistened; pour batter into the preheated skillet.

  • Bake in the preheated oven until top of cornbread is brown, and feels firm to the touch, 30 to 40 minutes. Turn out onto a serving plate and cut into wedges; serve immediately.
