What is Droewors?
Droewors is a common snack in South Africa that traces its origins back hundreds of years.
As Droewors is dried sausage, the first step is to make the sausage. Most droewors are made from dunwors, a type of thin South African sausage. Dunwors are used rather than dikwors (a thick South African sausage) because thinner sausages dry faster and easier.
Droewors are usually made from thin sausages made from beef. The process and ingredients are similar to boerewors, although veal and pork don’t dry very well so these meats are often left out in favour of beef.
The meat in the thin sausages is then spiced with coriander seed and is ready for drying.
Droewors are unique from other types of dried meat as the drying process takes place very quickly and in a warm environment. This was how droewors were made in the South African sunshine in the 19th century and it continues to be the process today. Other types of dried meats are usually dried in colder and more humid conditions.
Droewors don’t have a curing agent either, another feature that differentiates this traditional South African snack from other types of dried meat.
