Chicharrones especiales

Everyone is familiar with jamón serrano, chorizo and even salchichón (Spanish salami) but there are lots of other examples of Spanish charcuterie which are not exported. One of my favourites are the chicharrónes especiales, a speciality of nearby Chiclana. They are whole pieces of uncured streaky bacon which are cooked then served cold, thinly sliced and dressed with salt and lemon juice.
