Love Biltong, has a Biltong Directory where producers of biltong can be listed. They have a lot of different biltong recipes on their site. It is amazing what you can do with biltong besides just eating it.

One of the recipes I found was for making biltong bread.

The recipe needs finely grated ground biltong and you roll the dough into a swiss roll shape, with the ground biltong layered inside the dough. The recipe was unique as it needed a fire to cook the bread.

It does turn out delicious as the bread goes a golden-brown colour and becomes crispy on the outside.

I have been expermenting with portabelo mushrooms and spices and have produced a vegan biltong following many requests and enquires.

I shall be selling this at my markets and festivals from now on before adding it to mail order so I can gauge peoples reactions and comments.

Had an early start today, checked the Biltong box and the original Droewors is ready, the original slabs of Biltong are in need of another day to be moist.

The temperature and humidity  gauge is working really well and allows me much greater quality control. 

Will have to do another run to the butchers in next few days for another slab of silverside as orders are coming in nicely now, most are repeat and a few new ones who have heard about it. 

Now that I have harnessed facebook and my brother has done a cracking job on marketing advice I hope to be very busy soon. I will continue to make all my products by hand, this does mean that sometimes the heat may vary a little or the thickness of the meat can fluctuate but this is what makes it truely homemade.

The hard work is nearly over. I have been testing postage methods and my samples have been very well received. lots of work ensuring the best possible Biltong is produced. thank you to all those of you who have encouraged me to produce this for sale rather than for my own consumption. I always knew i like what I made but selling it to others is very different. From the feedback I have received I am now confident in my product and know it stands up in its own merit. thanks again, Scott
