What winter is complete without a regular diet of rich, wholesome potjiekos.

Potjiekos is uniquely South African, and is a friendly food, to be enjoyed by rich or poor, young and old, city-dwellers and country folk, needing only one’s imagination when it comes to selecting the ingredients. Potjiekos is traditionally made around an open fire, preferably in the company of good friends, with one or more Potjies simmering away. Family and friends are invited and they all settle around the fire with the softly bubbling potjie, chatting, enjoying a drink and having a great time, while the aroma escaping from the potjie, does its work.

The most versatile pot size is a number 3 – depending on the potjie, it will make a meal for 4 – 6 people

Cleaning: Some cast iron aficionados advocate never cleaning cast iron pans at all, simply wiping them out after use, or washing them with hot water and a stiff brush. Others advocate washing with mild soap and water, and then re-applying a thin layer of fat or oil.  A third approach, advocated by television chef Alton Brown, is to scrub with coarse salt and a paper towel or clean rag.
