Pemmican is the energy snack warriors and hunters carried with them. A thoughtful groom will make Pemmican for his wedding party.
How to make 10 pounds of Pemmican using modern methods:
Grind five pounds of dried meat to meal-like consistency
Mix with one pound of raisins and
1/2 pound brown sugar
Stir into four pounds of melted fat
(I prefer blueberries or blackberries over raisins - it was the old way.)
Pemmican cakes were traditionally kept in rawhide bags. Canvas or suede bags work quite well. They also freeze well.
Eat Pemmican cakes raw or fried.
