The best way to eat wors is right off the grill while the rest of the meat is cooking. "Feed the Chef first" is most important at any braai. By the time it's sat in a braai-pan for 40 minutes waiting for the chicken thighs and girly toasties to finish, the wors is ruined. :thumbdown:

Closest I'll ever get to putting vegetables on the braai for those Vegans who turned up unannouced and won't be asked back again.

I agree, Dutch food is much inferior to South African food.

Saffa shops started to pop up in the antipodean ghettos of London 20 years ago catering for homesick backpackers wanting comfort in an overpriced can of Castle lager or some biltong. In fairness they have come on a long way since then with some cracking produce on offer, the biltong is still a bit pricey for me so I make my own.

Nonsense, hard to beat a traditional Dutch rijsttafel.

I’ll also have to stand in the bitterballen camp, and split pea soup.

The Saffer version of pea soup seems to be similar to the Dutch version from what I saw on Wiki. I love pea soup

Boontjiesop (traditional bean soup)

Melktert (supposedly all Saffa , but I do not know)

Varkboud met bakaartappels en kweperjellie. (Leg of pig with baked potatoe and quince jelly)

Many European dishes would be echoed here, as well as Malay ones. And a few all African dishes, like mopani worms (people actually buy and eat those, here)

Haven't had a 'ricetable' and will try it next time I'm there (which would have been July :x ) bitterballen are shite. If you have them when you're out on a proper piss up you're burping up bitter crap the whole of the next day. I don't mind smoked eel though.

Thats what ithought but then it was explained to me that it's not dried boerewors. if you tried drying that stuff it tended to spoil so they made these thinner sticks for the purpose of drying them. Anyway I don't care. I like the stuff I buy.

Droewors doesn't have pork as pork spoils easily. Otherwise the spicing is essentially the same. Wors sticks are loaded with other chemicals and presevatives to ensure they last longer in all temperatures

Whatever. All i was saying is i was told it's much thinner "sticks" to stop it spoiling. All the videos i have seen with saffas making it on youtube start out much thinner than boerewors. The main thing is I like what i buy. :thumbup:

Take a piece of ordinary boerewors, press it flat on a plate, leave in cold fridge. Turn over every two days. After a week or two you will have droëwors, still slightly wet.

So the boerewors proved to be a big hit in Aldi, so they’re going to be a regular stock item from now on

Had a Barbie yesterday

Stopped in Uncle Boks in Longford and bought three 1/2 KG Borwors (two spicy, one Garlic)

Absolutely savage.

Picked up a load of Dorwors and Biltong also.

All the Paddies raving about the Borwors
