Authentically produced & delicious flavoured Biltong
The history of Biltong
The history of Biltong goes back to the Dutch Voortrekkers travelling from the cape exploring what would become South Africa. They needed food to sustain themselves and realised that the only way to preserve meat was to hang it out to dry thus Biltong was born!
Biltong is an air dried snack, made by curing red meats. Traditional South African recipes will be based around salt, cracked coriander, black pepper and vinegar. The meat is then hung and left to be air dried, before being sliced and enjoyed.
It is made using beef or can be made with game such as kudu, impala, ostrich – any red meat can be used. It typically was sold as long fillets but is now more commonly sliced and supplied in handy size snack packets to be enjoyed at your leisure.
