Dried jerky to long. How do I save it.

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 

I made some beef jerky and left it in to long. Now it is way to dry. Not chewy at all. I tried putting some in a sandwich bag and that in a gallon zip lock with a wet paper towel. Heated that slightly in the microwave to bring some of the moisture out of the paper towel and left it in for about a day. The jerky did not absorb any of the moisture.

 

Any ideas on how to save the jerky? I would hate to throw out a few pounds of meat.

 

Thanks.

Try freezing some & thawing it???

I slice & freeze a lot of Smoked Ham, and whenever I thaw it out, it's dripping moist.

 

Not saying this will work, but you never know.

Bearcarver,

 

Sorry I didn't get back sooner to thank you. I had to freeze it twice, but it helped.

That's Great !!!

 

I didn't know if it would work on dry jerky, but I'm glad it helped.

Make some jerky stuff out of it. grind it up in a food processor and a little pinch between the cheek and gum will get the spit glands moving. The convenience stores sell it in a snuff like container and the kids eat it up.
