    Default Skilpadjies

    Any fans here for skilpadjies? The cholesterol atomic bombs from the farm.

    I had them for the first time on new years eve in Wakkerstroom last year.

    They are addictive !

    love them.

    so much you can do with them.

    Braaied (it's obscene that I must mention that braaing is done on WOOD) in a soft bun with decent coleslaw .. oh man.

    The place down the road does them BRAAIED (on wood) with a creamy wine sauce.

    A skilpaddtjie is possibly the only thing that is more south African than an idiot politician!

    I almost fainted yesterday when on a routine visit to the corner shop/ bakery/ butchery I saw skilpadjies in the display fridge- I bought two trays immediately and phoned the blonde to tell her the mince can go back in the deep freeze, I had just bought supper

    Agreed - it should be cut into blocks of about 10mm square - minced it just turns mushy. YUMMMMMM

    Besides my heathen spelling...

    Are there any variants as far as the recipe goes or is it quite a plain delicacy?

    Need to try and find some here. Might have to hit Ghanzi!

    Does anyone have a decent recipe?

    I love Skilpadjies but find most of them mince the organs, which I don't really like. I also want to make it using venison liver and kidneys.

    Oh yes! Braaied long and slow on cool wood coals until all the fat is cooked out and crispy.

    My mom used to make them, coarse minced liver, coriander, salt and pepper.

    Unfotunately I cannot eat liver anymore
