I recently purchased a dehydrator. I made dehydrated pineapples and they came out really good. I canned them afterwards with a pressure cooker in Ball Jars. I'm hoping they'll last for awhile being that they're dehydrated and canned. I was thinking about dehydrating venison to preserve it. I am not a hunter. Is there a good place to get venison? Are there any tricks to making venison jerky? I was thinking about adding salt to it to make it last longer. I know you need to cut it thin to make the jerky. I'm not sure how long I could expect it to last.
