I have been trying to find out what the best method for preserving game meat in the field is, and many people seem to think that citric acid is the BEST substance for preserving game meat and keeping flies off of meat.
I have never used citric acid and don't even know where to purchase it around the Fairbanks area. Can you buy it online? How much does it cost to buy the powdered citric acid?
Does concentrated lemon juice work better/worse/same as citric acid? If you use lemon juice, does it have to be dilluted with water?
Is there a suitable substitute for citric acid that works? If so, where can it be purchased?
Thanks for your help and may you have a productive hunting season.
