If you want a snack don't head for the crisps and chocolate.Grab some Biltong
Biltong is a kind of cured meat that originated in South Africa. Many different types of meat are used to produce it, ranging from beef through game meats to fillets of ostrich
from commercial farms. It is typically made from raw fillets of meat
cut into strips following the grain of the muscle, or flat pieces sliced
across the grain. It is similar to beef jerky
in that they are both spiced, dried meats, but differ in their typical
ingredients, taste and production processes; in particular the main
difference from jerky is that biltong is usually thicker (from cuts up
to 1" (25 mm) thick), while jerky is rarely more than 1/8" (3 mm) thick
and biltong does not have a sweet taste.
The word biltong is from the Dutch bil ("rump") and tong ("strip" or "tongue")
This is one of the best snacks you could ever have for any occasion whether you are out walking,camping or just at home.
