Where to buy
Caul fat is not easily available as it is not a popular ingredient. As far as I know, it’s not available at supermarkets. You will need to get it from a wet market or a pork speciality store.
Even so, do order it in advance from your butcher; it may not be available due to it not being a popular ingredient. I always have trouble getting this ingredient on the same day, so I’ve learned my lesson to get it ahead of time.
Can be kept in the freezer for a long time.
