    The best thing since sliced bread!
    Rockey's 5kg Biltong Maker

    (Awie Louw)

    By Brian Stokes

    Here is what Brian Stokes from Australia does with with his botched Biltong.

    Sounds excellent!!

    Brian says:

    "I ran out of rock (coarse) salt halfway through preparing my first batch of Biltong. I substituted table salt on some pieces!
    Bad idea!!
    Table salt sticks to the strips better than Rock Salt does, making them far too salty. Oh well, I found a good use for it in a portable, high-energy food for hiking, camping or for that extra burst of vigour you need while watching TV!"

    Here is what I did:

    Cut the oversalted Biltong into 2x2 mm strips and make a "trail mix" such as:
    • 1 cup of oversalted Biltong (Shredded)
    • 3 cups of salted peanuts
    • 1 cup seedles dates cut into peanut sized bits
    • 1 cup smoke flavoured almonds
    • 1x375 gram package dark chocolate chips (i.e. for baking)
    Mix in a large plastic container.
    Seal and shake vigorously to spread the excess salt from the peanuts and the smoke flavour from the almonds throughout the mix.
    The excess salt from the Biltong won't be noticed with all the other flavours going on.

    Even well finished Biltong, cut into thumbnail sized chips is terrific in this snack mix.

    WARNING !!!

    Highly addictive. We can polish off kilos of this stuff in front of the TV!
