Dried Buffalo Hide by leananiemand

Dried Buffalo Hide

These strips of dried animal hide, being sold at markets and by the side of the road, are dried Buffalo Hide.
To prepare them:
1/. Throw them in the embers of a fire, or in burning charcoal until they have 2, 3, or 4 mm of charred crust on the exterior surfaces.

2/. Beat them with a stout piece of wood untill the charred exterior is gone, this also softens the hide up a little.

3/. Once denuded of any char, you may slice then into small pieces, which are then eaten as a snack, usually with beer. Very chewy, but a tasty snack, salt may be added if desired.
Omw, I don't think I will swop this for Biltong! Interesting info though 😉

Interesting info. But, I think I will pass this by.

In reading your commentary I would not have thought that this would end up as a snack.

I was thinking like @skipt07 That this was something other than a snack! It would take a lot of beer for me to try one I think.
