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.

Jaco's Relish

Jaco's Relish

My father-in-law makes this delicious 'concoction' with chillies and onions that they preserve and eat with most savoury dishes.  It will really spice-up sandwiches as well.  The amount of heat you get depends on the type of chilli you use, and the amount can easily be adjusted accordingly.
