    Here is a useful link for making home made pemmican. Pemmican stores well and is a good source of emergency high energy food for those compelled to bug out on foot.


    and some youtube videoclips with some good ideas for making pemmican.


    on a nutritional note, pemmican is high in saturated fats if using tallow as a binder / preservative... which is not a heart friendly foodstuff if consumed as a dietary staple. However, if dying of starvation is a more immediate threat to one's life than the risk of congestive heart disease, I think I'd chance the pemmican gladly.

    P.S. for those interested in how he made his dehydrator, here is the youtube link.

    Thanks for the link, Ghrit....I particularly liked the Saskatoon Pemmican recipe, substituting peanut butter for lard / tallow.
