Wether you’re into beef jerky, or have been buying it at shops, the art of making this delicious snack is one that you can learn.

Have you ever tried biltong? If not, you are missing out. This dried meat product is popular in South Africa and is similar to beef jerky. It is available from a variety of specialist outlets around the globe. It was created centuries ago by the Dutch settlers in a South African town called Graaff-Reinet, which is famous for its annual Biltong Festival. The best time for making homemade biltong is after a hard run or whilst trekking really far; this way, you will be able to collect your own meat and make it into biltong just like they did way back when.

Biltong is an awesome South African snack that is loved and enjoyed by many. There’s nothing quite like the taste of a good Biltong. By definition, it is air-dried meat that has been salted and spiced, but there are so many ways in which you can create your own flavour profile to make it even better. So what are you waiting for? Slap on some biltong and get ready to experience a new South African delicacy.

The word biltong originates from the Dutch words “bil” (rump) and “tong” (tongue). It is believed that it was early Dutch settlers who first introduced the delicacy to South Africa. And thus, the word “biltong” was born. The Dutch East India Company ships also arrived in Cape Town with a variety of meats that were cured. In this manner, it may be said that biltong originated with the Afrikaners of South Africa as a means to preserving meat over long periods of time without refrigeration.
