samp

Recommended Posts

Guest Michalyn

I have just returned from a holiday in SA and Namibia. This being my fourth trip I finally purchased a Potjke cook book and a SA cook book. I am trying to figure out what grain samp is made from, but so far no success. I would be so grateful if you would tell me. Thanks.

I think it is a kind of maize, but not sure.

The Mexicans also eat it it. I'll try and find out what they call it. I know a fellow SA here buys it at Mexican food stores.

The finer "stampmielies" is known as hominy grits, while the larger ones are just sold as hominy - usualy these are sold in cans - my wife loves it!

Dagsê.

 

"Stampmielies" or "keboemmielies" would be hominy and hominy grits would be called "mieliegruis" or "mielierys" in Afrikaans. Another tinned product resembling samp, but isn't, would be chick peas.

 

Now, what would the difference be between tapioca and sago? Asking....

 

And, has someone perhaps translated "bokkem" into English yet? Daai lekker ou gedroogde hardertjie, wat so sout is en reep vir reep saam met yskoue, droë wyn of bier geniet kan word...

 

Wederom.

Janneman,

Ek's nie 'n kenner nie, maar dis wat ek sover kon uitwerk:

 

Sago is van Maleisiese afkoms. Die woord verwys na die korrelrige "murg" van sekere palmsoorte, o.a. Maleisiese palms van die geslag Metroxylon (of meelboom).

 

Tapioka is van Portugese afkoms. Dit is ook 'n korrelrige meel, maar dit word gemaak van die wortelknolle van die maniok.

 

Who knew?!

Sam, dis nie heeltemal dieselfde vissie nie. 'n Bokkem is 'n gedroogde haarder, dus van die haringfamilie. Volgens my getroue woordeboek (wat nie tydens my aanvanklike vraag beskikbaar was nie) word dit as "bloater" vertaal:

 

A large mackerel or herring, lightly smoked and salted.

Dis net dat die Weskus se bokkems nie gerook word nie. Toepens, kwaai gesout en uitgedroog. Dis hy daardie - haarder- of maasbankerbokkems, ewe lekker!

Ja, hierdie word gerook, so nes hy uit die water kom, binnegoed en al! Ek het eers gedink ek sal dit nie eet nie, maar as jy sardientjies uit 'n blikkie kan eet, dan kan jy die goed ook eet...
