Tepertő

Cracklings

Libatepertő

One of Hungary’s favorite – but least healthy – appetizer/snacks, Tepertő (“TEP-PER-TYU”) is made by deep-frying pork, goose or duck skin. It is often sold “loose” by retailers from large bins, and unlike cracklings in other countries can be slightly “wet” at the center. Pictured above is a plate of libatepertő (goose cracklings) with two of its traditional accompaniments: salt and sliced lilahagyma (red onion). Is it is also commonly eaten with bread and pálinka (fruit brandy), and used as an ingredient in certain dishes, most notably Töpörtyűs pogácsa.
