Introducing a new series. Things you were never taught in school about native Americans. I hope to impart some glimpse at false history and have some fun educating people as well. These will most likely be short and scattered randomly. I will do two today because I want to start the series off right. This will be all for today. Until next week!
In the days before refrigeration, fresh meat needed to be preserved by various methods. The best way to accomplish this? Salt it and dry it out! The very word jerky derives from the word ch’arki, in the South American Quechua language. Its meaning? “Dried, salted meat.”
Yummy we invented some pretty good foods!!
