Hints and Tips
Nutrition: Mineral content of Rooibos increases nutritional value of any dish
Food preparation: Keep a supply of prepared Rooibos in the fridge. Use in food preparation and for diluting fruit juice or concentrates.
Iced tea: Make delicious iced tea by mixing chilled Rooibos with sugar and lemon juice, or blending it with your favourite fruit juice.
Recipes: Substitute Rooibos for milk or water in any recipe. Make a delicious filling for milk tart by dropping Rooibos teabags into the milk before heating it.
Dessert: Make a healthy, mouth-watering dessert by baking apples in Rooibos instead of water. Place the apples in a baking dish, pour Rooibos around them and spoon it over the apples occasionally while baking.
Dried fruit: Soak dried fruit overnight in Rooibos. No additional sugar will be needed when cooking.
Marmalade: Cook fruit in Rooibos to make a delicious, colourful marmalade.
Marinades and tenderisers: Use Rooibos as a base in marinades for meat and chicken, as it is a natural meat tenderiser.
Stews and casseroles: Replace the liquid in stews and casseroles with Rooibos. It not only adds a rich flavour, but also tenderises the meat.
Sauces: Add Rooibos to sauces for extra flavour and use it to dissolve stock cubes.
