For centuries, jerky has been a staple snack for adventurers, explorers, and travelers alike. Originating from ancient Incan and Aztec civilizations, jerky was a food made from lean cuts of meat that were dried in the sun and seasoned with salt, pepper, and herbs. The preservation process of jerky allowed it to last much longer than fresh meats, making it an essential item for those on long journeys or away from the comforts of home.
Today, jerky is still popular with adventurers and outdoor enthusiasts.
It’s a low-calorie, high-energy snack that requires no refrigeration, making it the perfect snack for hikes, camping trips, and other outdoor activities. The variety of flavors and textures make jerky a versatile snack, with options ranging from classic beef and turkey to vegan alternatives made from vegetables, fruits, and nuts.
What qualifies as jerky?
Jerky is a type of dried meat that has been trimmed of fat and seasoned with salt, pepper, and other spices. The meat is then cured and slowly cooked over low heat until it’s dry and firm. This process locks in flavors and preserves the food for weeks or months without refrigeration. Jerky is usually sliced into strips or cubes, but it can also be crumbled and used as a topping for salads, soups, and rice dishes.
The best way to enjoy jerky is to pair it with other snacks like cheese and crackers, or to use it as an ingredient in recipes such as wraps, salads, and sandwiches. Jerky is a great source of protein and can be easily incorporated into your diet for sustained energy throughout the day.
