Pemmican – The Original Survival Food
If you’re living through a disaster where you’re on your feet a lot and don’t have time to cook, one of the best foods you can eat is pemmican. It’s packed full of fat and protein and can give you lots of steady energy throughout the day without weighing you down. That’s why it was a popular food among Native Americans.
Although making this old school survival food takes a bit of work, it’s worth the effort. One of the great things about pemmican is you can add extras such as fruit, nuts, and even chocolate. But the best thing about pemmican is its shelf life. If you keep it in a cool, dark, dry environment, it can stay good for months, maybe even longer.
This article gives you a simple, step-by-step recipe for making your own pemmican. If you’re a prepper (or on a low-carb diet), it’s a skill worth learning.
