There is a lot of information out there on how to make jerky, and we’ve decided that this site,www.heatherlovespaleo.com, has the best recipes for all kinds of jerky.
The recipes on the website above all call for a dehydrator, though; if you don’t have one you can use your oven:
1. Follow the beginning portion of the instructions on the above link.
2. Put meat, as directed in recipes, in oven on the lowest temperature possible - directly on the oven trays (use aluminum foil or pans to cover the bottom of the oven to catch drippings).
3. Wait until it’s dry to the touch, turns brown and shows white fibers when bent. Anywhere from about 4 to 7 hours.
Jerky keeps indefinitely, but it’s best kept in a cool place or frozen.
Store Bought Jerky
Some store bought jerky is great! Just look out for nitrites and other preservatives, whose names you don’t recognize or can’t pronounce. Pasture raised animals are always best, and this applies to your store bought jerky, too.
