Marula trees are indigenous to Southern Africa and produce fruits with a distinctive and tart flavour. Home brewers often make a strong liquor called Mampoer by fermenting the fruits, but the most popular commercial by-product is the creamy and sweet Amarula Liqueur – delicious on crushed ice as the sun is sets!
Fresh Marula fruits aren’t easy to come by in Johannesburg, so we were super excited when a street vendor had them on offer. An easy way to preserve the fruit is by making a jelly that is utterly delicious with venison.
