Once a month there's a street market just down the road from us, selling everything from jewellery to baklava. It's something we enjoy doing on a Saturday morning, just strolling through the stalls and maybe have a coffee at a nearby cafe.

This morning I noticed a South African flag waving through the window of the coffee shop where we were sitting. That could only mean one thing: The stall selling boerewors rolls and South African treats were there! Boerewors is a type of sausage made with mince and a special blend of spices. I bought a whole spiral of venison boerewors with jalapeno's. Not very traditional, but I'm looking forward to tasting it.

I also bought a pack of buttermilk rusks. South African rusks are similar to biscotti, in that it's also a type of double-baked biscuit/bread that you can dunk in coffee. I've made my own rusks a couple of times already, but they have to bake overnight so when I'm lazy buying them is a bit easier.
