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.
