I have seen monkey butter recipes floating around the web for years so I decided to make a batch and see what all the commotion was about. This spread is a delightful combination of bananas, pineapple, coconut, and citrus that I’m finding irresistible (my favorite so far is to spread a piece of whole wheat toast with peanut butter and a generous layer of this Monkey Butter). It’s easy, nutritious, and delicious.
Bananas are an excellent source of vitamin B6, soluble fiber, and contain moderate amounts of vitamin C, manganese and potassium. Just that is enough for me to eat this daily.. A little word of wisdom, I have been told by numerous older ladies that you can’t can bananas, so do some research into this before you can any. I just make it and keep it in the fridge.
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.
