Tip 01 Tip 01

Change it up, If butternut isn’t your favourite, then rather use sweet potato. Its sweet earthy taste makes a great substitute.

Tip 02 Tip 02

Say no to dry wors. The secret to not overcooking your wors is braaiing it on medium heat while using tongs to turn the wors regularly to ensure an even heat distribution.

Tip 03 Tip 03

Rest your meat - To keep your wors juicy make sure you allow it to rest for a few minutes before serving. This gives the moisture a chance to sink back into the meat and ensures none of the precious juices are lost when you cut it open.
