A potjie is essentially a Dutch oven, brought to South Africa, spread through the country by the Voortrekkers and now used throughout Africa by many different cultures. Made of cast iron, it’s the most versatile cooking vessel in Africa. Whether you’re making bread, desserts or stews, you can do it all in a potjie. In general, use a three-legged round-bottomed pot for potjies and soups and a flat-bottomed pot to make breads.
Preparing a newly purchased Potjie
The first step is to wash and scrub your Potjie properly using warm water, Dishwashing liquid and Steel Wool.Dry it the completely coat the inside with cooking oil (cheap Sunflower oil will do the trick. Heat the pot until the oil begins to smoke and then wipe it clean with a paper towel. Repeat the "Oil, Heat & Wiping" drill until the paper towel comes out clean.
When you’ve finished cooking, wash your potjie, using warm water, dishwashing liquid and steel wool. Dry it well afterwards and store it with crumpled newspaper inside it. The paper will absorb moisture and keep it from rusting too badly. If it does show a bit of rust, just scrub it and wash it off. Rinse the pot before using it and if you have not used it for a while, wash it. Some people coat their potjies with cooking oil during storage to guard against rust but the oil becomes a but sticky after a while. If you go that route, wash the potjie before every use.
Where and when
Potjiekos is normally cooked in the great outdoors over a slow fire. Potjie pots aren’t fussy, so you can use charcoal. Generally, once the pot is heated, it needs only the occasional log or charcoal to keep it on the go. Potjies need slow cooking, so be prepared to invest some time.
Tip: Putting coals on the lid ensures that thorough heating (and grilling) is taking place. This is especially important when making bread.
