Boerewors literally translates as "Farmers Sausage" (English pronunciation "boo-ra-vors").
Boerewors is made from coarsely minced beef (sometimes combined with minced pork, lamb, or both) and spices (usually toasted coriander seed, black pepper, nutmeg, cloves and allspice). Like many other forms of sausage, boerewors contains a high proportion of fat, and is preserved with salt and vinegar, and packed in sausage casings. Traditional boerewors is usually formed into a continuous spiral and we sell it in that form (as illustrated). Boerewors is often served with pap which is a traditional South African porridge made from mielie-meal (maize meal) and covered with a tomato and onion sauce (see Maize Meal and Tomato & Onion)Boerewors will be send out frozen and will be packed with ice packs to keep it cold. The products will be defrosted by the time it gets to you but you can freeze it again or use it within 3 days
