Have any of you ever dried any meats?
Now, I am very aware of beef jerky.
I have dried cooked hamburger (hamburger rocks).
But, have any of you ever dried other meats? I have canned some meats like chicken and ham and some beef. But I am trying to venture on some dried meats. :shrug2:

I would love some input or guidance if any of you have ventured forward on this topic.

I gather that you are asking about just the plain drying meat factor.............NOT like jerky.

I have no help--- but when someone answers I want to know what they do with it after they dry it? What do they use it in? How or with what do they eat it?

Somehow I just can't picture 're-hydrating' meat....so???

Is this what you meant?

I use cheap cuts of meat - thin sliced round steak, etc. . . . dry til leathery. To rehydrate, I pour boiling water over it, and let it sit for about 30 minutes or so. Then toss into whatever soup I happen to be making at the time.

For the Zuni traveling food - I dry the meat until it's brittle. . . . powder it in my food processor, then add to the mix. Then it's just add the mix to boiling water and drink.

Sunshine,
what kind of food processor do you have that you are able to grind your dried meat into powder?

frugalfanny, you got the idea.
I am just thinking more and more about not being so reliant on the deep freezer.
