Slatko Watermelon Rind Jam
You then leave the rind and skin for a few hours and then you boil it down with vanilla, cinnamon, lemon and cloves or whatever flavours you like.

I made mine less sweet than usual halving the sugar quantity (it is usually one part sugar to one part fruit).
The Best Koeksister recipe & my adventures in the Klein Karoo
It was only about 3 hours into the drive along Route 62 when I realised what I was actually doing; I was travelling 400km into the middle of the Klein Karoo (aka nowhere) in search of 'The Perfect Koeksister'.

South African Crunchies
This is a popular after school or lunch bag treat for all South African kids. Most South African baking is done using self-rising flour - and I highly recommend using it! The kind we get here in Canada is Brodie's.
Real Fudge Recipe
When I was in primary school in the late 1980's, I created my first recipe book. It was a "reporters notebook", ringbound, with a model posing as a cowgirl on the cover (I cut it out of a magazine). It had an index, featuring basic recipes like meringues, cheese scones, pecan nut cookies and fudge.
The South African Cookie
Crunchies are something a lot of South Africans grew up with, like Hershey’s Kisses in North America, or hot, roasted chestnuts in Europe. Yet, I never ever thought that they were in fact a p…
