Borts - Борц
Dried meat cut in stripes or ground to powder.
The long and harsh winters in Mongolia make it
necessary to store sufficient food to survive, and most of
that will be meat. A family will eat approximately one cow
and seven or eight sheep.
The source of the meat varies by region. In the Govi
camel meat is available, and in the mountainous north
reindeer. But particularly for Borts horse meat is also a
popular option. It is said to keep people warm more than
other types, which is attributed to the special fat of a
Prepare the Borts
The fresh meat is cut into long strips, 2-3 cm thick and 57 cm wide. The strips are hung on strings under the roof
of the yurt, where the air is free to circulate.
After about a month the meat is dry. It has turned into
hard and small sticks which feel like wood and have
taken on a brown color. The volume has shrunk so much
that the meat of a cow now can easily fit into the
stomach of the same cow.
The dried Borts is broken into small pieces or ground to
a coarse and fibrous powder. It is stored in a linen bag
which allows contact with air. In the dry climate of
mongolia, this method of storage preserves the quality of
the meat over months or even years.
Among the unique contributions of Mongolia to the
world's musical culture are the long songs, one of
the greatest features of the Mongolian music,
overtone singing and morin khuur, the horseheaded fiddle. The music of Mongolia is also rich
with varieties related to the various ethnic groups.
