Jerky is often made using whole muscle meat but it can also be made with ground meat! But don't you need a special tool to make those perfect strips? Nope! Grab a ziplock bag, rolling pin and 2 clipboards (plus your dehydrator) and you've got jerky!
I am an artist and aspiring farmer currently living in Philomath, OR (a tiny mill town in the Willamette Valley). I love cooking and never buy food out of boxes or bottles, unless a local farmer put it there. I'll be growing the majority of our veggies and meat/milk as soon as i get my hands on some property and in the meantime enjoy foraging, farmer's markets and bartering for my food. You can read more about me at PocketPause.com and see my art at MirandaRMueller.com and shop for my product at FiberFriends.Etsy.com or GoNudeSoap.com.
Yes, I am all over the place. Did i mention i enjoy multi-tasking?
