How to Store Beef Jerky for Long-Term Storage
Cured and dried jerky lengthens the shelf life of beef. Used for an emergency food supply, beef jerky provides a lean source of protein that can be difficult to find among other long-term food storage products like dried fruits and vegetables. Like dried fruits and vegetables, improper storage of jerky can thwart your preservation techniques and ruin the stored batch.
