It’s now just over a week until Christmas day and not all of us have got our Christmas shopping finished. If you’re struggling to find small and unique presents to fit into your stockings, fear no more. We have a very different stocking filler for you!
KRAVE Jerky and Biltong
It’s the perfect size to fit into a stocking. There is no need to refrigerate it, so you don’t have to worry about leaving it in the stocking for a long time. There is a delicious flavour for everyone; Szechuan Pepper & Ginger Salt Beef Jerky, Zesty Lemon & Dill Salmon Jerky and Warm Chimichurri Beef Biltong. At KRAVE, we base our flavour profiles around the Five Taste Sensations that we experience on the tip of our tongues; unami, sweetness, sourness, bitterness and saltiness. With this in mind, we developed three flavours that would combine the taste sensations in a way in which they could work together to complement each other.
What is jerky and biltong?
Jerky and biltong, in their most simple forms, are strips of dried or smoked protein. Biltong originated from South Africa, where the indigenous people would hang up chunks of beef, elk, fish and other proteins and leave it to dry in the sun. We associate jerky with cowboys, however, it is a delicacy that originated from Native American tribes. The tribes would preserve the protein with salt and then smoke it by the fireside.
So, what does this mean for today? The processes haven’t changed much, although it’s safe to say that we are much more committed to food safety and quality than they were 200 years ago.
