Perfectly piquant

October 11, 2010 - Events

One of the most delectable recipes we will ever post – this one is a winner from our Singita Lebombo kitchen.  There’s no question you will fall in love with it.

Chilli and Pepper Jam


5 red peppers

3 yellow peppers

1 clove of garlic

1 shallot

1 tablespoon grated ginger (or less according to your own preference)

1 vanilla pod

85 ml white wine

35 ml while balsamico vinegar

2 fresh chillis


Deseed the red peppers and cut them into small cubes.  Do the same with the yellow peppers.  Finely dice the garlic, shallot and ginger.  Place all of the ingredients into a pot and bring to a boil.  Season if necessary and simmer for 10 minutes – then remove the vanilla pod.  Continue to simmer until the jam forms a jelly if placed on a cold plate.  Fill clean jars with the chilli jam and store in the fridge.

Serve with charcuterie, cheese, bread sticks and olives.

Bon Appetit from Singita Lebombo Kitchen!

Adventure Heroes

September 03, 2010 - Community Development,Events,Singita

Our very own Jaco Ehlers, Singita Sales Manager and charity-superhero, has just completed a 7 day cycle challenge all in the name of a good cause.

Jaco cycled the 330km-long Challenge4aCause challenge through the harsh, dusty terrain of the dramatic Damaraland Desert in Namibia to raise funds for the Save the Rhino Trust.

All the funds raised through the 2010 Challenge4aCause have been donated to an anti-poaching unit. The aim of this unit is to help preserve the highly endangered, and desert-adapted, black rhino.

And we have more cycling superheroes among us – Sabi Sand GM, Jason Trollip, and Singita Sabi Sand Head Ranger, Mark Broodryk,  also recently took part in a charitable cycling event: the third and final Tour de Tuli (previously known as the Tour de Kruger).   The 2010 Tour de Tuli saw 290 cyclists pedal 350kms to raise an impressive R700 000 for charity.

Every Rand and cent raised through the event will be used to teach rural children about the importance of the environment and the critical role they play in the preservation of our world.
