Boerewors is based on an older traditional Dutch sausage called the verse worst, though it differs somewhat in its ingredients. In South Africa, Boerewors is as traditional as you can get and it is hard to imagine a sports event, farmer’s market or school fete without someone selling Boerewors Rolls aka "Worsbroodjies".

Basically, a Boerewors Roll is a gourmet sausage in a long bun, enjoyed with Caramelised Onions, Tomato Relish and of course Mrs. Balls Chutney!

It is pronounced “Boo-ruh-vors” and loosely translated it means “Boere” – Farmers and “Wors” – Sausage, "Farmers Sausage". It is made from coarsely minced beef (sometimes combined with minced pork, lamb, or both) with a combination of spices (usually toasted coriander seed, black pepper, nutmeg, cloves, and allspice) stuffed into a synthetic or organic casing.

Boerewors is traditionally cooked over coals, but you can also cook it on a gas grill, oven or in a pan. However, the smell of boerewors on an open fire cannot be beaten!

Only use gas on days where there is a Total Fire Ban!
