Where can you buy Boerewors?

Boerewors, a South African culinary staple, is as synonymous with the nation's food culture as the iconic braai. In this article, we explore everything from what boerewors is, to the best ways to cook it, and where you can purchase this delicious sausage, whether you're near a South African 'spaza' shop, in Swindon, or browsing online.

What is Boerewors?

Boerewors, derived from the Afrikaans words 'boer' (farmer) and 'wors' (sausage), is a traditional South African sausage known for its coiled shape, coarse texture, and a mixture of spiced beef, pork, or lamb. The unique flavour profile of boerewors comes from vinegar, spices such as coriander, black pepper, nutmeg, cloves, and allspice. This sausage is a staple at any braai but also enjoys popularity in stews and other cooked dishes.

The Best Way to Cook Boerewors

The quintessential method to cook boerewors is on a braai, South Africa's beloved barbecue. Cooking boerewors on a braai not only enhances its flavours with a smoky essence but also celebrates the social aspect of South African cooking. To achieve the perfect braai'd boerewors, allow your coals to settle to a white glow to ensure even cooking without burning the sausage. Regularly turning the boerewors ensures that it cooks evenly, preserving its juicy flavours inside a crisp, perfectly charred casing.
