By learning how to make ultimate survival food Pemmican, you can ensure that no matter what happens you and your family will have a source of nutrition.

Most people don't realize that it really wouldn't take all that much to cause a complete upheaval in our society that would end up creating food shortages among other issues. With the population of the world continuing to grow and expand it's only a matter of time before food shortages end up creating major problems for us all.

A 'perfect storm' of problems

As food shortages worsen the cost for what you buy at the store will go up, and then there's a good chance that people will panic and buy as much food as they can. This will drive the cost of food up more, which will fuel the panic even more, which will ultimately end up causing major food shortages. This is why it's so important always to have a supply of non-perishable foods stored in your home.

One of those non-perishable foods that you should always keep on hand is Pemmican.

The Ultimate Survival Food: Pemmican

Pemmican is often referred to as the ultimate survival food because it packs a lot of nutrition into a small volume of food, and also because if stored properly it can retain its nutritional qualities for decades. One of the reasons that it should be food that you keep on hand is that it is something you can prepare at home without too much effort.

By following these steps you can make your Pemmican, and then you will have what is perhaps the best survival food in the world on hand in case you need it:

How to make Pemmican

  • 1
    Select a lean cut of meat, beef, venison, and bison are all great choices. Make sure that you trim off any excess fat and then cut the meat into very thin strips.
  • 2
    Once you have your clean strips of meat, you need to dry them. You can use a dehydrator, you can air dry them in the sun, or you can use your oven at the lowest heat setting to do it. It's important to remember that if you are using your oven, you need to leave the door opened slightly so that the moisture isn't trapped in the oven during the dehydration process.
  • 3
    After drying the meat the next step is to grind it into a fine powder. You will know if the meat is dehydrated enough when it breaks when you try to bend it. If you own a food processor, then this is the best way you can grind the meat into a fine powder. If you don't own a food processor, you can cut the meat into small pieces and then use a blender to finish the job. If you have access to neither of these due to being in a survival situation, you can also grind the meat by hand.
  • 4
    Next, you take the fat that you removed during trimming phase, and you heat it in a pot. You may need to add extra fat so that you will have enough to finish making your Pemmican. Once the fat has come to a boil and melted, you should use a strainer to remove any large chunks that are left.
  • 5
    Next, you add the fat to the powdered meat in a 1 to 1 ratio. After mixing it very thoroughly, you then need to form the Pemmican into whatever shape you want to. One of the easiest methods is by spreading it out over a pan, letting it dry, and then cutting it into strips for consumption.
  • 6
    Finally, the last step is to store the Pemmican in airtight containers and place it in a cool and dark place. You can freeze your Pemmican if you want to, but you don't have to since it will keep just fine without any refrigeration.

I feel it's important to point out that this is the basic method for making Pemmican, and that there are a few other ingredients you can add if you want to. For example, you can add mixed, crushed, and dried berries to the mix to give the Pemmican a little more flavor and nutritional value. Other options include adding honey or peanut butter as well. Unfortunately adding anything besides meat and fat will shorten the shelf life of Pemmican, which is why it wasn't mentioned here.

Your first inclination may be to think that I am some survival expert, or that I live off the grid practicing a primitive lifestyle. The reality is that I'm just a regular guy who happens to have developed a strong interest in survival. After taking a look around at the world, it quickly became pretty clear to me that there was a lot of potential for disaster. Keeping this in mind, I decided that it would be in my best interest to learn as much as possible about survival so that if need be, I could keep my family safe, fed, and sheltered. Today I'd like to share with you what for me has been an invaluable source of survival information.

The source of survival information I'm talking about is The Lost Ways. The Lost Ways is a survival course that focuses on teaching you the kinds of skills that our ancestors used on a daily basis.

During that time our ancestors learned different methods for building shelters, making fire, and storing food without the benefit of refrigeration. 

The Lost Ways is an amazing compilation of many of the secrets that our ancestors knew. Sadly many of the survival secrets that have been passed down for generations are slowly being forgotten. By purchasing The Lost Ways, you can find out what these secrets were and how to use them yourself to help ensure your survival and the survival of your family.
