Boerewors: The Farmer’s Sausage
The Boerewors is the farmer’s sausage and is based on a traditional Dutch sausage called verste wors. The Boerewors is traditionally made from coarsely minced beef, toasted coriander seeds, nutmeg, cloves, allspice and black pepper. It can, also, contain a mix of minced pork and/or lamb. The sausage ingredients are preserved via salt and vinegar. The iconic form of boerewors is a continuous spiral, which gives this sausage a symbolic universal quality. Perhaps, the spiral symbol is Celtic in nature. The spiral sausage may speak of the never-ending cycle of life.
