<> As you travel around East Africa you will
see countless Africans selling food along the roadsides, in the
markets, or through bus and train windows. They sell fruit, boiled
eggs grilled maize, boiled maize, yogurt, milk, soda pop, fried dough
balls, samosas, yellow buns, and real seasonal delicacies like roasted
mice and termites. The following are a few East African snack foods
you can try. "Beef Jerky" is more common in South Africa but still a
part of the East African diet. It is generally made from beef, but
other game is used when available. Cut strips of meat following the
grain of muscle. Make strips 2 inches wide and 1 inch thick. Best made
during cool dry weather if possible. Salt the meat by rubbing the
mixture in well and leave in the basin of salt mixture overnight. Dip
a cloth in vinegar, wring dry and whip the meat well. Hang the strips
of meat in a cool, dry, well ventilated place until dry. You can also
hang the meat on an oven rack placed in the top slot of the oven. Dry
the meat on low heat. Recipe By :
