I have heard people debate pemmican recipes at length. They have gone red in the face over the validity of another mans recipe. I find this to be inredbily silly. We are not trying to reenact the recipes of the first peoples to head west. I like a good bit of pemmican with some mango in there. I enjoyed the fact that the author features and article with such.
This great author has some awesome recipes in the article as well as a basic process for the whole thing. Like most of the best articles on the net this one also features a great video on the process as well. Its important that you hit a reader with as much information as possible in as many forms. Enjoy this one and make some of your own meat and fat mix for the backcountry.
Bonus: How to Make Pemmican, the Original Survival Food
Invented by the natives of North America pemmican was used by Indian scouts as well as early western explorers.
Native Americans spent a great deal of time on the go and depended on having portable, high-energy, highly nutritious, and filling foods that would last for long periods of time without refrigeration.
Pemmican is a portable, long-lasting, high-energy food. It's made of lean, dried meat that's crushed into powder and mixed with hot, rendered fat. This makes it one of the ultimate foods to have stockpiled for when SHTF or disaster strikes.
People really should avert their gaze from the modern survival thinking for just a bit and also look at how folks 150 years ago did it.
These guys were the last generation to practice basic things, for a living, that we call "survival skills" now.
