One of the great added benefits of harvest time on the farm is the mid-morning ritual of warm, freshly baked mosbolletjies.
Mosbolletjie is an Afrikaans name for a small bread made using the newly fermenting grape juice, or must. This delicious little bread has a hint of sweetness and a hint of spiciness and is great with a good cup of coffee.
The Goatshed bakery makes mosbolletjies throughout the harvest, using the fresh must from the Fairview cellar. They use the must from various different grapes and have found that Shiraz and Pinotage give a particularly tasty character. This is why these guys are sometimes bright purple inside!
The Goatshed’s mosbolletjies are available in the Fairview tasting room, but usually sell out before lunch! So call ahead if you would like to get your hands on some!
How about giving these a try yourself? Here’s a link to the Goatshed’s recipe.
