Heston Blumenthal Boerewors Burgers followed by Caramel Stuff

Being South Africans living in the UK, there are lots of things we miss from SA. Some are available in the UK, but lots of things aren't. One of those things is Boerewors(a coiled, spiced, pork and beef sausage). Theres a butcher in Chester that sells Boerewors, but its not always the same and thus can be disappointing, but Heston Blumenthal came to the rescue with this recipe.

And what better way to end off with another South African Favourite: known in our household simply as "Caramel Stuff". For this you'll need Nestle Peppermint Crisp(not readily available in UK, I have made it with Aero Mint, but its just not the same.

Crush digestive biscuits, add butter and press into a dish, ramekins or glass. Stir the caramel until it is smooth, add a little whipped cream, pour over the biscuit base, then add a layer of cream and garnish with Peppermint Crisp.
