Bec's need for sausage

Bec, who saves this blog from being me all alone in blog land (apart from the mysterious Jessica Rabbit and the occasional Richard Gere), has asked for information about boerwors suppliers in Sydney. Boerwors is a word I tend to misspell (like orifice and fowl), so I have taken the liberty of using her spelling in this post.

Boerwors is a long, loosely-packed South African 'farmer's sausage'. It's usually sold in a coil, which has earned it the nickname 'dog-pooh' in our household, though rest assured it is a tasty treat.

I recently discovered an interesting store in Lane Cove called Springbok Delights, an old butcher's shop which sells not only meat, but also other South African delicacies, such as Ouma Rusks (baby food to Aussies, but very popular for breakfast with South Africans of all ages). I'd put money on them having a nice bit of sausage and plan on investigating soon.

Over to you, my legion of blog fans... who knows of good vendor who will satisfy Bec's craving for not-so-smallgoods?

I may be onto something: the butcher at St ives who makes boerewors (pls note offficial spelling has an extra e in the middle, I checked) is part of a chain that's opened a store in the Marrickville Metro. I've just sent head office an email asking if I can order boerewors through M'ville, from St Ives...

My butcher's not on email but we have an antique shop run by a Yarpi that flogs hot BBQ sauce.

You will piss every SA'can off if you spell it wrong, it's boerEwors. Boere is the plural of Boer so it means boer's.
Have you tasted Koeksisters yet, got my aussie hubby hook and sinker!
In Perth we got the shop Cape to Cairo.

Hi Hannelie,

Yeah, I've learned about boerewors the hard way... got it wrong in my first book, and, as you can see, still have trouble with the spelling!

LOL, you'll get there in the end.
Afrikaans is a very interesting language.
