Special African Rusks

Special African Rusks

Here we have wide variety of Africal Style Rusk widely also known as Biscotti. The rusk (know as Beskuit in Afrikaans) dates back to early South African settlers. Today there are many varieties including sweet and healthy options. Nice to enjoy with hot cup of coffe or tea.

Rusks is the anglicized term for beskuit and is a traditional Afrikaner breakfast meal or snack. They have been dried in South Africa since the late 1690s as a way of preserving bread, especially when travelling long distances without refrigeration. Their use continued through the Great Trek  and theBoer wars through to the modern day. Rusks are typically dunked in coffee or tea before being eaten.

Rusks are essentially double-baked bread dough. Round balls of dough are closely packed in pans and baked like bread, after which long chunks are cut or broken off and slowly rebaked to a dry consistency.
