    Storage Food Review: Homemade Beef Jerky - 8 Year Update!

    Storage Food Review: Homemade Beef Jerky - 8 Year Update!

    In 2011 we made some beef jerky. Iíve kept it in a drawer in my refrigerator since to see how long it will last stored that way. We did an initial update after 4 years. Here is that video:

    This is our 8 year update. Iíll keep updating this every few years until it goes bad or I leave YouTube whichever comes first.

    Bottom line: Still good.

    I suppose it depends on how it is made - see un-refrigerated jerky all the time. Not sure of self life though. No worries on self life here - our deer jerky is consumed as fast as we can make it.

    when I made this jerky I deliberately dried it out more than I would have for immediate consumption. Less moisture equals longer storage time. That's why it's crunchy.

    Like that dried jerky you see in big jars at service station, looks like dried leather, but actually is real good eating. Rural processing plant down south makes a real dry thin jerky both beef and deer.
    Real good and in high demand. My renter/friend who makes it for us does not make it quit as dry or thin, but it is damn good!

    wow 8 years is a long time.

    for us to have any last that long we would need TONS of it. it gets ate so fast around here that i quit making it ... was a non stop process.

    luckily the meat market (French City Meats) in my town makes it on a weekly basis now... they've been doing close to 10lbs a week. its only from beef they already raise/sell at their shop, so we know its raised good & done legit.

    they charge a good bit for it, but its fantastic & consistent. Lilly asks for it to be sent to her on base for xmas & her birthday.

    never knew it would keep so long! thanks for sharing!
