Memorial Day weekend arrives in just a few days, which means lots of summertime road trips and homemade beef jerky!
Kids are getting out of school, so summer vacations can’t be far behind. In our family, we like to take road trips. We pack a trip bag full of books, games, a camera, binoculars (the kids especially love these) and of course, lots of good food. I have my mainstays like homemade Larabars, hard-boiled eggs, fruit, cheese, homemade crackers, and graham crackers. This week I decided to test some homemade beef jerky for our upcoming trip. It’s so easy, I don’t know why I haven’t made it before. You simply slice up some meat, marinate, and dehydrate in the oven.
Like it spicy? Add some black pepper or cayenne. Sweet? Add some extra honey. Ginger, garlic, lime – the possibilities are endless. Now all you need is a destination.
