Our own biltong!

I suppose one of the few things that a normal South African can't live without is biltong. So, after 3 months in Australia the absence of biltong became too much and we decided to make our own! (Okay, Gert and Elize made us jealous with their home made delicious biltong!)

It was a nice little project for Brett to build us a biltong box that we can use to dry the biltong.

The biltong box ... ready and waiting!

A week ago we made the first batch

Overnight in the fridge:

And finally in the biltong box ...

It dried quickly, 2 1/2 days!

And it was so nice to have biltong again! The first batch was a bit sweet to our taste and as I'm typing, the second batch is busy drying in our own Biltong maker! Should be ready tomorrow!!!
