Combine the cornmeal and salt in a large bowl. Stir in only enough boiling water to make a stiff batter. Stir in the cracklins. Shape the dough into patties about 3 inches in diameter, about one-half-inch thick. Arrange on waxed paper. Heat the oil in a large, heavy skillet over medium-high heat. Fry the patties about 5 minutes on one side, and 3 minutes on the other.†Remove and drain on paper towels.
