About the Products
Cheeky Red Pepper Chutney
Kishmish ~ Pietermaritzburg, South Africa
The Cheeky Red Pepper Chutney from Kishmish is a solid favorite in their line of chutneys. A spicy/savory blend, it will sure become yours too! Bursting with flavor it’s the perfect compliment to muesli, platters of finger foods, and is wonderful with cheeses. As the Kismish team says, “[it] creates magic cooked into a meal.”
"Flavors of Africa" Soft Toffee Trio
Sweet Temptations Toffees ~ Somerset West, South Africa
A stunning combination of three soft toffees with indigenous African flavors. Marula Fruit is a highly-prized, round, yellow fruit that brings a light and fresh flavor to the rich toffee. Milktart is a traditional South African dessert bursting with creamy cinnamon. Lastly, Rooibos (like the tea) has herbal, smoky and vanilla notes. Yum!
Cape Gooseberry Jam
Melissa's ~ Cape Town, South Africa
Cape Gooseberries, also known as Goldenberries, are small, yellow-orange fruits with a juicy, seedy centers. Although not distinctly sweet on their own, Melissa’s boils the local, sun-ripened fruits with just the right amount of sugar to create the perfect sweet and slightly tangy jam. Spread it on hot buttered toast, fresh scones and more.
Mango & Chili Balsamic Reduction
Melissa's ~ Cape Town, South Africa
Sun dried mangoes and yellow chili peppers were steeped in aged balsamic vinegar to create this rich, dark, sweet, hot and tangy reduction sauce. Extremely versatile, drizzle it on salads or roasted vegetables, add it to salad dressings and marinades, or simply use it as a dipping sauce. The options are endless!
"This is Africa" Medium Roast Coffee
Terbodore Coffee Roasters ~ KwaZulu-Natal Midlands, South Africa
A high-grade blend of 100% Arabica beans are sourced from Uganda and Ethiopia. Roasted and blended together they create a deep, rich flavor with soft fruit undertones in the finish - a characteristic often found in Ethiopian beans. Get your coffee cups out and sip on this full-bodied roast with a fruity after taste.
Sunkissed Green Chilli
Hekpoort Heksie ~ Hekpoort, South Africa
Watch out, this amazing Sunkissed Green Chilli will be gone before you know it! It’s a great addition to nearly anything, and as the owner, Katy says, “especially if you’re a ‘chilli head’”. Try it in curries and stews or even in creamy pasta dishes and on top of roasted veggies for an extra kick. Don’t be shy, dig in!
South African wines from Avondale Wine are sold separately.
