Nothing is as uniquely South African as rooibos. This week we use its flavour in salads, chicken and confectionery.

BUTTERMILK PUDDING WITH ROOIBOS CUSTARD

Rooibos tea adds a depth of flavour to puddings. Serve this version of a buttermilk pudding with warm custard or vanilla ice cream.

ROOIBOS AND LEMON CORDIAL

This cordial can be mixed with soda water, still cold water or used in a refreshing cocktail. We even use it in our rooibos jelly recipe.

NO-FUSS ROOIBOS AND CRANBERRY JELLY

This jelly contains less sugar than supermarket versions. We use cranberry juice and some of our homemade rooibos and lemon cordial – even the kids will love this jelly. Let it set in a bread tin and slice into portions for desserts, or let it set in individual jelly moulds.
