There is a difference between biltong and jerky that not everyone know about.
Biltong is cured and dried using salt, a small amount of vinegar and spices.
Jerky is cooked at a low temperature to remove all the moisture.
When making biltong the fat is left on while jerky's fat is removed to prevent spoiling since it's not cured.
Just felt like sharing that
I much prefer biltong since it has more flavour and can be eaten a bit moist or pink in the middle.

Canít speak for kangaroo, but ostrich is definitely nothing to write home about and Iíve had it number of times and from some great cooks too, blah. We actually ad a thread here about some unusual things we have had to eat. I t was interesting.

I must admit I found it hard the first time I had kangaroo, I was thinking the same...I didnt try it till I was in my early 30's...

We dont have it very often at all...and this is the first time we have actually bought it and will cook with it at home

What difference does it make? Kangeroo or Rabbit. They both hop.

Cows and dogs both walk, but I don't want to eat a dog.

I will pretty much eat anything that doesn't eat flesh and doesn't have hands, if there are no good environmental reasons not to eat them.

I was sure you would get it. After all Australia has been overrun with both rabbits and kangeroo in some parts.

I am surprised at myself in how much I know about Australia.
