Drywors / Droëwors
Droewors is a South African snack food, based on the traditional, coriander-seed spiced boerewors sausage. It is usually made from dun wors (Afr. "thin sausage") rather than dik wors ("thick sausage"), as the thinner sausage dries more quickly and is thus less likely to spoil before it can be preserved.
If dikwors is to be used, it is usually flattened to provide a larger surface area for drying. The recipe used for these dried sausages is similar to that for boerewors, though pork and veal are usually replaced by beef, as the former can go rancid when dried, mutton fat replaces the pork fat used in boerewors.
Drying makes the sausage ideal for unrefrigerated storage.
