Droe wors in hot weather.

Postby chrisd » Tue Feb 09, 2010 7:17 pm

Hi
I have got some meat from last weeks shoot and would like to know if it will be alright to hang up droe wors.
I have put some in the coolest place in the house and have put a fan on them.
Will this work??
The other droe wors I would like to freeze and take it out when it gets colder to braai or if possible to hang up and dry.
Has anyone done this and what where the results.
The rest I made sausage and steaks.(Letchwe)

No matter the weather, as long as you keep the droewors and biltong well ventilated and as you mention in a cool place.
If you are drying a lot at once best either freeze it because packing it in
plastic bags and leaving it either in the fridge or on a shelf will lead to
mould growing.
Freezing dry stuff is not my favourite as the drywors or biltong has a
distinct "freezer" taste .... even if vaccum packed.

If you freeze wet wors best to vaccum pack it. I always do this and when
I defrost and dry the wors or biltong it's good and fresh; no freezer taste whatsoever.

Ek het vir my 'n Biltong King Biltong Maker gekoop - http://www.mellerware.co.za/pages/our-p ... ker-84.php wat so 4kg nat vleis op 'n slag vat.

Wanneer ek gaan jag dan laat ek die vleis verwerk en spice en asyn en dan vacuum pack in so 4kg gewigte. Ek vries dan die vleis en haal 'n pak uit as ek wil biltong maak. Ek sit die sak in die yskas en laat dit lekker ontvries en los dit sommer nog so 'n week om sag te raak. Ek hang dan die bilton in my biltong maaker en 4 dae later het ek nat biltong en 5 dae later is dit kurk droog. Die biltong is heerlik vars en sag en winter of somer kan ek dan biltong maak net wanneer ek wil.

Ek vind dat as ek die biltong klaar droog en dit dan vries, smaak dit nie so lekker soos wat ek die nat vleis in sy spice en asyn vries nie.

Dankie vir die tips.
Ek het so 5 kg droe wors opgehang en die res het ek in die deep freeze gesit en sal dit uithaal en droogmaak soos julle se.

Ek stem 100% saam JohanJ... ek doen dieselfde. Dit werk baie goed en jy het altyd droë wors of biltong vir daai laaaaang sit in die hide!
