How to Make a Tasty Rabbit Jerky: A Homemade Recipe
Who said that you could only use bacon and beef for jerkies? For me, that is completely acceptable. I have already tried making goat and pheasant jerkies. And they taste great! Now, I would introduce to you another exotic type of jerky: the rabbit.
I tried making my very first rabbit jerky a couple of months ago. It so happened that my friends who went on a game brought me a fresh rabbit meat. They said that it was one of their biggest trophies they had on their hunt. Of course, they asked me to cook it for them for their next trip.
For long outdoor activities, I know that jerkies are the ideal snack. These delicacies have a long lifespan. Moreover, they stay tasty even after a long time. These are the biggest reasons why I decided to make a jerky out of a rabbit meat. The recipe I used is the same as I used on my beef jerkies. Read further so that you can get started.
Some Considerations On Making Jerkies
If you are quite knowledgeable to jerkies, you can already skip this section. But for those who are new to this recipe, there are some things that I want to teach you. Creating jerkies is fun and doable. However, you have to learn its ropes first.
How to Make a Rabbit Jerky
I already revealed the basic concepts that you should understand about jerkies. Now is the perfect time to introduce to you my homemade rabbit jerky recipe. Do not worry too much if you are still not that good when it comes to making jerkies. All I want you to do is to follow the steps that I highlighted below. Trust me. You won't fail on this one. Let's start!
Preserving the Jerky
After the aforementioned procedures, your rabbit jerky should be ready for consumption. Chewing on a hot and flavorful jerky is nice. It is a mouth-watering treat that is so hard to resist.
But of course, we just have to consider that our appetite has limits as well. If you are living together with your family, you can consume a two-pound jerky in a single eating. But if you are alone, it is quite difficult.
However, this doesn't mean that you should throw the leftovers already. Moreover, it is not a restriction to how much jerky you want to make. After all, there is a way to preserve this delicacy. Since the latter has a long lifespan, a jerky should still be edible after one to three months. This is one of the reasons why hunters and hikers (like my friends) always bring food on their excursions.
To preserve a jerky, just place it inside an airtight bag and container. Next, you have to freeze it thoroughly. You don't want those spoil-causing bacteria to have a contact with your favorite treat!
Making a homemade rabbit jerky is not that difficult. I just used a basic jerky recipe, and it really tastes great! Of course, I did enjoy it as well! In fact, I was craving for another serving while I am writing this blog. That's how impressive and delectable the flavor of a rabbit jerky!
I just realized that as long as you got the right ingredients and procedures, creating jerkies out of any meat is possible. If you could follow the same, you could make any jerkies that you want! You just have to be persistent and creative in the kitchen!
