My homesickness comes in the form of craving foodstuffs from home.
How do I remedy this - well by making the foods I crave of course :)
Not only do I get to eat some of my favourite foods, but I learn a lot along the way!
Last month I was craving Boerewors - a South African sausage, so I went about finding the ingredients to make it.
Thanks to the fact that we now own a Kitchenaid that came with the mince attachment, I bought the accessories for sausage making and let rip :D
If you would like to try these yummy sausages here is the recipe I made:
1 Kg Pork
1 Kg Beef stew
1 Kg lamb stew
2 Tbsp Salt
1 tsp Pepper
1 tsp ground coriander
1/4 tsp ground cloves
1/2 tsp ground nutmeg
1/2 tsp garlic powder
1/2 cup red wine vinegar
2 Tbsp Brandy
Mince meat and mix with all of the spices and liquid.
Let sit overnight.
Fill into casings.
