Ingredients

  • Dried berries, 1/4 as much as jerky(Blueberries or billberries are good)
  • beef jerky
  • suet (enough to hold ingredients together)

Directions

Shred the jerky finely with a sharp knife. be careful, this can be hard.
If the berries are big chop them up too.
Melt suet and combine all ingredient to make soft blob.
Pour into a leather bag and cut off chunks when you need them.
Or pour into a pan lined with tinfoil and when cool, unmold and cut into bars.
Store in the fridge.

Note: This is very good for cold weather. to make a quick soup, drop a piece into boiling water and serve with fry bread.
