While these ingredients don’t exactly make us want to chow down, combined, they make a pretty important survival food. Pemmican. According to James Townsend And Son, pemmican was a food created by indigenous people in the early 18th to mid 19th century, and later adopted by travelers and explorers; when made properly, it could last upwards of 20 years, so it was ideal food to keep on hand. It sort of looks like a mud brick that one would use to build a hut with, but given it’s long shelf-life and large serving of protein, it was the perfect thing to make and eat out in the wilderness.
Would you ever try pemmican?
