South Africa: J&M Biltong
Biltong is not beef jerky—it’s beef jerky’s cooler older brother. It’s made from a large variety of cuts from different meats (beef, Wildebeest, and ostrich are popular) and can contain more than 50 percent fat. That may not make for the heart-healthiest snack, but it makes for a flavorful one. Since its 17th century origins in South Africa, the same method is still applied to the meat: applying vinegar, massaging it with salt and spices such as coriander, cloves, and pepper, and drying it naturally. J&M is the Jack Link’s of South Africa, and has been making biltong 71 years. You can find their original Secret Recipe biltong all across the Western Cape.
