    Really great recipe. Used to buy these from Muizenberg Market on Sundays! Only difference I can taste is Aniseed - I think? Although with that being said I much prefer them without!

    Magali, I see you havent had a response. Naartjie is a citrus fruit which can be substituted with tangerine or maybe clementine. Ronnymarcus, I'm sure that those will be following in the near future. I'm working on "poffadder" at the moment
