Hi: I am wanting to spend some time in the bush and plan on eating only meat for the month. Can I make jerky, dry my meat, safely without using salt. Salt is good for flavour but do I absolutely need it to dry my meat safely. The problem I have with most salted dried meats is that they have a heavy salt mix and salt is simply not good for you in high quantities. I am trying not to carry too much into the bush with me. A bag of salt would really be a hassle.
Any informed thoughts on this? Suggested reading.
