Biltong in boxes, packs, and packages – this South African treat can be purchased in any supermarket or in the market.
Pieces of dried meat with aromatic spices are delicious, and this is the main reason for their popularity.
To make biltong they choose low-fat beef, but there are other variations when they use fillets of ostrich, antelope, elephant or buffalo. First, the meat is marinated in vinegar, and then in a mixture of brown sugar, salt and various spices. The final and fairly long stage is drying the meat in special cabinets, ovens or premises.
In South Africa biltong is a favorite food, people eat it at any time of the day, add it to salads, pizzas and sandwiches.
For African children a piece of jerky would sometimes replace a pacifier. Now and then you can see a child wearing a rope around his neck with biltong tied to one end.
Tips and hints: by the way, biltong is an excellent South African souvenir for family and friends.
