Buttermilk, the ultimate rusk. As Ouma says, you don’t mess with a good thing. The rich and creamy buttermilk rusk is bursting with scrumptious flavor. With thanks to the Boer trekkers, who discovered a crunchy, tasty, long lasting snack that would stay fresh while they travelled from the Cape to the Transvaal. Rusks have since been an essential in South African households. Buttermilk Rusks 500g are melt-in-the-mouth delicious. Have one. Then have another, and another.
The story of Ouma rusk started more than sixty years ago in the small North eastern Cape town of Molteno. Te great depression spurred Ouma Greyvensteyn and her friends to put their heads together to find ways of helping their church mission. Each woman invested half a crown and set out to grow their investment. Ouma Greyvensteyn used her half a crown to bake a batch of rusks, using her trusted family recipe and selling them to farming families in the community. Orders soon started pouring in. Today, Ouma Greyvensteyn is still South Africa's most famous baker. The Ouma bakery is still baking rusks on the farm Friedenheim, on the outskirts of Molteno. No less than 100 full time staff work around the clock in sifts, ensuring that South Africans will always be able to 'Dip'n Ouma'.
