I didn't think I'd get around to making jerky, but once I put the roast in the fridge to defrost there was no turning back...can't let free-range beef go to waste! This was about the second time I've ever used my food processor, but oh so nice to make thin slices of partially frozen beef. I think it will turn out better than when I sliced it by hand. I just add salt and fresh pepper, red pepper and a bit of garlic and oregano, then put it in the dehydrator.
I also dried some fresh mango. I love it. All the brands I've tried taste icky, almost fishy, to me, but this is sweet and crispy, with bright orange color. I was afraid it would oxidize with nothing added to prevent it, but it looks beautiful!
Let's see, what else am I packing...some gluten free (but not sugar free) nut bars from the HFS. Some Caprylic acid (as I eat too much sugar on trips and get yeasty), deflect, vitamin C.
I concocted a good salad sprinkle with salt, vitamin C, oregano and garlic. It's good, but may look a little suspicious to the people who search the bags...so I'll just bring some little salt shakers and keep the vitamin C in it's bottle until I get there
There's my random travel preparation notes for ya!
