Skilpadjies

This is one of my favorite Karoo delicacies. They’re called¬†skilpadjies¬†in Afrikaans which translates as little tortoises in English. They’re little parcels of lamb liver wrapped in the sheep’s caul fat seared on the fire and they end up looking like little tortoise shells. They are absolutely delicious, but very fatty so moderation is definitely key. This is definitely something that everyone should try at least once in your life. Be sure to eat them hot though, because if you don’t, the fat will stick to the back of your teeth.
