At Fynbos, they prefer growing their chilli plants by using the drip system. There are 2 big advantages of this system:
You are only watering the plant and not the parthways, therefore saving on water.
The drip system avoids wetting the leaves, which means no fungicide sprays are used on the chilli plants.
The difference between Biltong and Beef Jerky
There are 3 main differences that set Biltong apart from jerky:
- Biltong can be a lot thicker whilst jerky is normally very thin meat.
- The vinegar, salt and spices in biltong, together with the drying process, cure the meat and add texture and flavour. Jerky is dried with salt but normally without vinegar.
- Jerky is often smoked whilst biltong isn’t.
The highest braai.
Jan Braai (Jan Scannell) was the first person to braai on Mafadi Peak which is the highest point in South Africa at 3450 meters above sea level. He achieved this feat on the 15th of September 2013 as a promotional forerunner to “National Braai Day” a local term used interchangeably with the name of the actual public holiday, Heritage Day, observed on the 24th of September.
