What is the difference between biltong and jerky?
Essentially biltong is the South African version of jerky, whilst jerky hails from the Americas. Biltong is never smoked, but cured in vinegar and spice for flavour. Usually thicker than jerky, biltong delivers more texture and flavour. Jerky is dried on a rack, whilst Biltong is hung out to dry.
How to store
Biltong should last a good while when stored correctly. The idea is to keep it dry - so stored in a dry brown paper bag, some excess moisture should be absorbed by the paper. Generally the rule of thumb when it comes to Biltong is that if it ain’t mouldy, you can eat it! Biltong lasts months in the freezer, ready to go in your moment of need.
