This is another interesting recipe from the Nourishing Traditions cookbook. This is a traditional native american food. The indians would use lean buffalo or venison slice it thin, dry it in the sun, pulverize it into a powder, add it to melted suet, add dried berries, and let the mix solidify. This served as their traveling food and apparently would not spoil. Early settlers adopted the food and raved about its ability to promote endurance.

Here's the recipe:

- 3 lbs lean venison
- 1 lb suet or tallow
- 1/2 cup dried cranberries (optional)
- 1/4 cup maple syrup (optional)

1. Dehydrate thinly sliced venison in oven or dehydrator.
2. Chop finely and use food processor to grind into a powder.
3. Melt fat
4. Add all ingredients to quart sized mason jar

I think I'm going to have to give this a try as a turkey hunting snack. What do you think?
