The Procedure of Making Pemmican, the Ultimate Survival Food


Before starting to tell you the process of making Pemmican, I have something to confess: I was always interested to make Pemmican, from the day I got to known its recipe from The Lost Ways, outstanding collection regarding survival information which is both published and edited by Claude Davis.

It is the recipe of natives of North America and it was also in the use of Indian scouts before the dawn of western explorers. Both these people had to spend their majority time while travelling so they had to immerse their whole faith in this portable, highly nutritious, full of energy and filling foods which will go for a long duration of time.  A friend named Alan was heard talking about me on so many different occasions. He likes me to enrich his food basket with nutritious food. Last weekend to fulfill his wish, I dropped all my awesome plans of resting at home and watching TV and went to his home to give him a bucket full of surprise and I also packed up all the required ingredients that were necessary to shoot a DIY pemmican video.

I took my camera with me and marched toward the door. Before going to Alen’s place I had to make a stop at a native market and bought what we would need to make a group of pemmican. The ingredients are really simple, you just need

  • Beef, 6lbs
  • Rendered Beef Tallow, 2lbs
  • Blueberries, 3oz

When I reached there and shared my idea with Alan, he became too much excited about the whole plan. We reached on the terms that we will have to do all the talking and I will be filming the whole process.

The whole brain behind the filming of pemmican was to let my all reader here on “BestSkillsforlife” know that they have this video guide if they are interested to make their own delicious, healthy and nutrition’s rich pemmican.  With the plus point of being enriched with nutritious, this can be called a standalone survival food. To your surprise and to enhance your pemmican knowledge, it is not bad in taste either. During the time, it will leave an impact on you


I hope that this video had made your day and you had enjoyed it a lot. And this video also kicks you to try making one of your own pemmican by yourself.  Also keep this in mind that many other essential survival secrets of our great grandparents are still waiting to be tapped.
