I salted and peppered it and let it sit as I heated the oil to 375 deg. the boy stared at the ears...

checking out the ear

Once fried they are crispy and tasty, they fry down to a much smaller volume. Options for use include topings for salad or other dishes in need of cruch. try it.

I love crisp pig's ear. We have dish we called "sizzling sisig" - in the Philippines that uses pig's ears, snout etc. and served on a sizzling plate - very popular to drink with beer.
