Anise

Anice is the sweet seeds of a flowering herb.  It bears a strong family resemblance to the members of the carrot family, that includes dill, fennel, coriander, cumin and caraway with its fine feathery leaves. Many of these relatives have been described as having a licorice flavour, to some extent, but anise is the true taste of licorice— its oils are distilled into the flavouring for licorice candy (not from the herb licorice, which has a different taste).

Camping Granola

Camping Granola

Granola is a breakfast food and snack food consisting of rolled oats, nuts, and honey that is usually baked until crispy. During the baking process the mixture is stirred to maintain a loose, breakfast cereal-type consistency. Dried fruits, such as raisins and dates, are sometimes added.

Besides serving as food for breakfast and/or snacks, granola is also often eaten by those who are hiking, camping, or backpacking due to the fact that it is lightweight, high in calories, and easy to store.

Granola is often eaten in combination with yogurt, honey, strawberries, bananas, milk, and/or other forms of cereal. It can also serve as a topping for various types of pastries and/or desserts. Granola, particularly recipes that include flax or linn seeds, is often used to improve digestion.

Cloves

The word ‘clove’ is from the Latin word for ‘nail’. Cloves are the immature unopened flower buds of a tropical tree; they resemble small nails, with a tapered stem. The large end of the clove is the four-pointed flower bud.  It has a warm, pungent, and aromatic bouquet. Its flavour is sweetly pungent, astringent, and strongly aromatic, providing a anesthetic feel to the mouth when bitten on.
Coconut Jam Tartlets
  • Time: 20 min baking

Coconut Jam Tartlets

Hertzoggies are very traditional 'Afrikaanse tertjies'.  A shortcrust pasty filled with apricot jam topped with coconut meringue.  Great to fill the cookie tins for holiday season!  Just don't expect them to last too long.  Normally my short crust pastry is too much for the topping so I added a second topping for left over crust. (see 'Accompanying Recipes'). They also make perfect gifts or could be packaged and sold from your home industry (tuisnywerheid).
