Emergency Survival Rations - Pemmican Recipe

Raisins. Publix brand raisins "sweet sun-...Image via Wikipedia
Pemmican, which was originally a food of Native Americans, has become a very nutritious food item that works well as an emergency survival ration. It is generally made from several different types of foods that can be combined to suit the personal tastes of almost everyone. Here is a simple recipe that can be used to make pemmican.

Pemmican Recipe
1/2 cup Fruit (raisins, apples, apricots, etc.)

1/2 cup Cereal (wheat germ, graham crackers, granola etc.)

1/2 cup Seeds (pumpkin seeds, sunflower seeds, etc.)

1/2 cup Nuts (walnuts, peanuts, cashews, etc.)

1/2 cup Powdered milk

1/4 cup Honey

2 teaspoons Lemon juice

Option: Add shredded jerky or dried sausage to make a meat pemmican. You will need to make sure that the sausage or jerky has a very low fat content.

Use at least one item from each of the different kinds of food. Coarse grind the dry ingredients and then combine with the dried milk, lemon juice, and honey. Thoroughly mix all the ingredients together and shape your pemmican mixture into small rolls about the size of your finger. Wrap each individual roll of pemmican separately using either foil or plastic wrap to make your own emergency survival rations.
The choice of ingredients can be varied to suit the individual tastes of your family members.
