Drywors is Related to Dutch Metworst
Some folks will disagree with my view on this culinary topic and I welcome a plurality of opinions on this tasty matter. Drywors is akin to a salami in some ways, as it is made from a thin sausage. However, drywors is cured quickly in warm and dry conditions, unlike salami which is cured slowly in a cool but humid environment. Drywors is related to the Dutch droge worst or metworst. Does drywors deliver better taste than biltong? I think so and invite you to take the taste test yourself to see if I am right.
Purists Reckon Biltong is the Truer Meat Taste
Purists may state their case that biltong is the truer dried food than droewors or drywors. In the vein of my daughter’s predilection for keeping all foods separate on her dinner plate i.e. not letting the peas touch the carrots, these are typically deeply personal matters. If you prefer to not mix your foodstuffs, then biltong may be the better option for you. Both South African wonder foods are delicious and well worth trying if you have not done so. These tasty treats deliver an African vibe to your palate.
Both drywors and biltong are excellent accompaniments for quality beers and wines. If you are like me and enjoy meals that offer a selection of tasty treats with drinks, then you will love these two cured meat products. I recommend drywors and biltong as great party platter fare and your guests will sing their praises. You can pick up drywors and biltong from quality South African grocers in Sydney and around the nation’s main cities. Indeed, you can even order them online. Whether drywors is your preferred dried sausage or biltong is your first choice, both of these classic South African treats will make your tastebuds sing.
