Poached Rhino?

A serious topic in South Africa and Africa at the moment as there has been an increase in Rhino poaching in South Africa due to the increase in demand for Rhino Horn in East. The figures are increasing despite the effort of so many good people trying to prevent this horrific poaching of Rhino. A great NGO to support is the organization called Stoprhinopoaching.org, they have several projects going on at the moment to create awareness as well  as raise funding to educate communities. You can go to their website www.stoprhinopoaching.com and support them and get more information and how you can contribute to their plight.

Poached Rhino 2013 -483 reported cases to date and in 2012 there were 668 reported cases

Funds Raised by Stoprhinopoaching.org R1 078 946

Registered Supporters of the organization 13642

Please spread awareness and mobilize friends, family, colleagues and corporates to play a role in the fight against rhino poaching.

Also one of my favourite recipes and very easy to make

here is my take on a simple beer bread recipe:

 

Ingredients:

  • 500 g self aising flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 20-30 ml sugar
  • 1 egg
  • 340 ml beer
  • grated cheese
  • chopped spring onion

Combine all dry ingredients, add beaten egg and beer ( at this stage you can add cheese, chopped spring onion) and combine until a dough is formed, place in a cast-iron pot on some coals, place the coals on the lid of the pot. Be sure to not put too many coals on the lid or bottom of pot, we dont want burnt bread. Bake for an estimated 20 min, as this is cooking in an uncontrolled environment ( open fire) be sure to check the bread every now and then to make sure you havent burnt it.

Tap the the bread to check for a hollow sound, or stab a skewer in the centre and when you pull it out the skewer is dry not damp.

 

Serve with a Potjie stew
