The History Of Love Biltong

After growing up in South Africa watching my uncle making biltong and tasting the delicious flavours in the winter periods.
It quickly became a family tradition. Towards the end of summer, we would start to get excited as we knew what was approaching.

Biltong Making Time!

Biltong making time was a family bonding time. My father would buy the meat on a Friday night after work. We would add the spices and put the meat in the fridge and Saturday morning we would be up early hanging the meat in the garage rafters.

We then waited eagerly for the meat to dry, going into the garage after school each day to see the progress.

Air drying took about four or five days, but the results were delicious. As we moved and got older the tradition fell away until I had children of my own.

Now we still make it on a Friday night, but we use a small biltong maker to hang the meat in as we live in the Northern Hemisphere and there is too much damp in the air for the meat to dry correctly.

It is lovely to watch the excitement on my children’s faces as they see the biltong being hung waiting in anticipation for the meat to be ready.

  1. You actually make it appear so easy with your presentation but I find this matter to be really something which I believe I might never understand. It seems too complicated and very huge for me. I’m having a look ahead for your subsequent put up, I?¦ll attempt to get the cling of it!

  2. I want to show some appreciation to you for rescuing me from such a scenario. Because of surfing around throughout the the net and seeing opinions which are not helpful, I believed my entire life was gone. Living devoid of the strategies to the problems you have solved by means of this article is a serious case, and the ones which might have in a wrong way affected my career if I hadn’t come across your site. Your own personal capability and kindness in playing with all the pieces was invaluable. I don’t know what I would have done if I hadn’t come across such a thing like this. It’s possible to at this moment relish my future. Thanks a lot so much for the professional and sensible guide. I will not think twice to refer the website to anyone who wants and needs counselling on this problem.
