Liza Brown's Vaalboontjiebredie (Bean Stew)

"Most of the old people lived on the farms in those days because they had their own land where they planted crops. They came to town only once in three months to buy provisions. My ma could work a shovel and put up a wire fence like any man. She was a wagon leader of a team of oxen on the farm - the red ones with the horns. Pumpkins, beans, tomatoes -name any kind of vegetable in a garden and my ma used to grow it. Look, when I make a stew, it's a long, very slow process."

         Mutton or lamb knuckles or beef shin 500 g

         Onion 1, sliced

         Cinnamon 1 x 2 cm stick

         Cloves 2

         Allspice 1

         Salt, to taste

         Black peppercorns 2

         Garlic ½ t crushed

         Water 3 cups

         Large potatoes 4, quartered

         Green beans 500 g, trimmed and chopped

  1. Place the meat, onion, spices, salt, pepper and garlic in a saucepan with 2 cups water, bring to the boil and simmer until tender. Add the potato and simmer until nearly cooked. Add the green beans.
  2. Add the remaining water and simmer very slowly until all the ingredients are soft. Add more water if necessary - the stew shouldn't be dry.

Cook's note: When the stew is done, I mash some of the potatoes with a fork to bind it.

Health-conscious, wheat- and gluten-free

Wilma Bruwer's Venison Pies

"The traditional recipes I grew up with live on in the family. I am presently writing down recipes and stories about my youth for my granddaughter. I remind her of the dishes she has come to know in my home so that the recipes can be passed along from one generation to the next."

Henry Oliver’s Quince Tart

”Because my ouma suffered from asthma, we moved to Prince Albert, where my oupa worked as a labourer on the farm Weltevrede. We couldn't attend school because the school was 25 kilometres from the farm and there was no transport. I was about 11, and I helped my oupa in the fields. My ouma was the big influence in my life. She believed a man must be able to do everything, including cooking and sewing."

         Quinces 16, peeled, seeded and chopped

         Sugar 2 kg

         Water 3½ liters

         Lemons 2-3, peeled and the pith removed

Henry Oliver’s Quince Tart

  1. Place the quince pieces in a saucepan, just cover with water and boil for 15 to 20 minutes until softened, but still firm. Boil the sugar, water and lemon rind in another saucepan until thick syrup has formed. Remove the quinces from the water, put them in sterilized glass jars and top up with the syrup. (Make sure that there are no air bubbles in the jars.)
  2. Preheat the oven to 180*C. To make the pie crust, rub the butter into the flour with your fingertips, and then add the egg. Knead to form dough. Chill for 30 minutes.
  3. Roll out the dough thinly and use to line a greased pie dish. Arrange the preserved quince on the dough and bake for 25 to 30 minutes until the crust is golden brown.

Cook's note: Serve with fresh cream or custard.
