Boerewors

Hi, had loads of problems to find a decent boerewors here, so I make my own - and is looking for fellow South Africans to share it with around a fire...

Re: Boerewors

yep i make my own also now, i get skins from a butcher in germany along with everything else.

i wanted to make an order with a well known online boerewors seller located in norther europe, but the prices they charged were always different from the email offers they sent out and the postage costs were always different from those stated on the site.

i left it a few months and went to place an order again with the same results, being charged at the higher rates and dodgy postage pricing.

e.g. postage for 10kg was 20 euro but what you actually recieved was 8.5kg wors as they included the packaging.

Re: Boerewors

Here in Romandie we have 'saucisse rotir' which is really excellent. Direct translation of 'Bratwurst' but totally different.

Aijajai, such a comparison is enough reason to start the English (some call it the Boer) war again

Shape and size is more or less the same but that is about where it ends - there are as many varieties of boerewors as there are butchers in South Africa, but essentially it is made of 80 % coarsly minced beef and 20% pork, with a total fat content of no more than 20%. Spiced with coriander, cloves, nutmeg, salt, pepper and a touch of vinegar - sometimes a touch of garlic.

Excellent on the fire...

But that's easy to make. And I know some people who have the
biggest available Potjie Pot on the Market (feeds approx. 100 people).

Your saucisse rotir is very nice, and what I like is taht most butchers around add their own special touch to it so not all of tastes the same.

Traditional boerewors is made of beef, and that makes it quite expensive and people around here are more used to pork in the wors. So I made 'saucisse rotir' but spiced it the boerewors way - an instant success with our Swiss tongued friends.

On Saturday 23 June we have an open day on the farm - I am putting a couple of kilos of my sausisse a la boer on the grill, Christian opens his cellar, antzje exhibits her art, and the kids can enjoy the playground and space - you are welcome to drop in - just let me know beforehand reon@wors.ch

True, especially if you google it first
That's a big pot!
Will ask to team up next time we have a braai on the farm?

Re: Boerewors

Do you make biltong as well? Would love some nice biltong rather than the hard dried stuff you buy in small packets here

Re: Boerewors

There should be enough threads created in the past which deal with boerewors topic. Look for some hints where to get it and guy by name Hans Here is an old refreshed thread: Boerewors Perhaps mod in charge of "wors" could merge these two

Re: Boerewors

Open day at Es-Bons:

`n Reuse groot dankie to everyone who attended the worsbraai at our open day on the 23rd!

I do not have words in Afrikaans, let alone English or French to express our gratitude and happiness - it was absolutely fantastic to meet and make so many new friends! The only regret is that I did not have enough time to sit down and kuier properly with everyone, but more than 200 portions of boerewors served, all stock and 800 bottles of wine sold says it was a little hectic at times

But I listened to the dreams around the fire of lambs on the spit, biltong potjies, a serious Durban curry and even n lekker skaapkop and tripe evening - so true to my first post, this boer is already making a plan to fulfil your culinary fantasies keep an eye out for dates here and on our website www.wors.ch.

PS. Working full steam to fill orders (and a bit extra) 50kg of boerewors, 25kg of biltong/dry wors and 10kgs of chilli bites coming up pm or email me to add yours.

PPS. I have no photographs of Saturday if anyone has then post it here.
