BEFORE YOU BEGIN

Welcome to meat preserving! Jerky has been made for hundreds of years, as a way of using the entire animal, storing for a longer period than the fresh meat, and is very tasty and nutritious! In this guide, you will learn how to use meat, the essential ingredients (and other flavourings) to make delicious dried jerky to share with family, friends and other community members. 

I would love to see photographs of your homemade jerky – you are welcome to give feedback and flavour ideas or requests! Don’t forget to use your jerky logs to keep notes handy  (I recommend photocopying the chart and binding for a long-term reference guide).  You can share photos on www.facebook.com/foodpreserving.org
    
Enjoy making your own jerky for your family and friends! -Megan
