Paperback – October 6, 2015
The jerky world has undergone a major revival in the last five years in terms of experimentation, products, popularity, and just plain good eating. In All Things Jerky. we find a collection of some of the best tried and tested recipes from around the world, including instructions for all the equipment, gear, and recipes you’ll need to make jerky at home. While authors Andy Lightbody and Kathy Mattoon are accomplished hunters, this book is not a hunting or fishing how-to. Instead, it is the culmination of their last forty years spent sampling jerky and dried snacks around the world while traveling, hunting, fishing, and writing. These flavor-packed recipes are perfect for sharing with the entire family.
