Avid campers and hikers might keep jerky, or dried meat, with them when outdoors. Drying is one method of preserving food for longer storage. While you can buy jerky, you can also make it yourself!
Our office had one last package of deer meat from previous recipes in our Wild Eats series, so we made jerky.
For more information on jerky, visit the National Center for Home Food Preservation through the University of Georgia.
