Waterblolmmetjie bredie, little water flowers lamb stew, is a traditional South African Recipe. The spring flower waterblommetjies are commonly found in the shallow waters of the Southern Cape, South Africa. Waterblommetjies are also found in most supermarkets from May through to September.
This waterblommetjie bredie recipe was passed on to me from my mother, who originally got it from her mother, my grandmother. Waterblommetjies in itself has a very foreign taste, lacking flavour. To overcome this we add a combination of sour apples and wine.
Most people prepare waterblommetjie bredie with stewing lamb or mutton, but I have tried variations with stewing beef. In my opinion this waterblommetjie bredie recipe work best with mutton.
As far as the white wine goes, you cannot go wrong with Sauvignon Blanc. Arguably the most versatile wine for marinades, seafood dishes, and veggies, this whites pronounced acidity and herbal notes are sure to add depth and zest to everything from stews to Italian dishes.
For trending white wine, have a look at chablis white wine. It makes for very interesting reading.
We hope you enjoy this waterblommetjie bredie recipe. if you do, please share it with your friends and family or let us know what you think.
