Lean pork should be firm and pink with slight marbling.
If you want good crackling, get your butcher to score the skin. Even the supermarket butchers will do this if you ask.
Score the crackling and baste while roasting, but never let the skin touch the boiling fat in the dripping tin, or it will fry, and be "as tough as leather". It will become 'Cuir Boullie", that is 'boiled leather armour plate' (which was specifically manufactured in olden days to withstand battle axes!); so keep your crackling well raised above the fat in the pan.
Do ensure pork is properly cooked, raw pork can be very dangerous.
Fillet (tenderloin) is great for curries, kebabs and especially stir-frys. A step-by-step guide to prepearing fillet of pork can be found here.
