How To Make Pemmican: The Ultimate Survival Food

I’ve got a confession: I’ve wanted to make Pemmican ever since I found the recipe for it in The Lost Ways.

Invented by the natives of North America, pemmican was used by Indian scouts as well as early western explorers. These people spent a great deal of time on the go and depended on having portable, high-energy, highly nutritious, and filling foods that would last for long periods of time.

My friend Alan had mentioned on other occasions that he, like me, wanted to enhance his food reserves with this nutritious food. So, last weekend I cancelled all my awesome plans of staying at home and watching TV, in order to surprise him by showing up with the necessary ingredients to make a DIY pemmican video.

I grabbed my camera and headed out the door. On my way, I stopped at a local supermarket and purchased what we’d need to make a batch of pemmican. It’s super simple; here’s all you need:

  • 6 lbs. Beef
  • 2 lbs. Rendered Beef Tallow
  • 3 oz. Blueberries

When I arrived, Alan was pretty excited about the idea. We decided that he’d do all of the talking and I’d do the filming. So here it is:

    One person says to double boil the rendered fat to remove the extra water to make it last longer, does this mean to do the boiling in a double boiler, or boil it twice? I am confused by that comment.

    I pay a visit every day a few web pages and information sites to read articles, except this web site presents quality based articles.
