    Bmc65, found it in http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Jq5Ch0t0HSw at 1hr 38 minutes. It is pemmican as Mellow and Maurya said.

    Thanks non-danglers. Have any of you tried it? I would like to add some different fats to our diet and coconut oil doesn't seem to work for us. After watching the video, I realize we need to cut way back on the grains. It will be hard on my son, and harder on my hub-type who wants easy ways to get our son fed, but I think it's crucial for our health.
    How's the book for reading by the way. I'd want the hub-type to possibly read it too, which would be a hurdle and a half.

    I've read about pemmican but never ever seen it. I get fats from my own chicken, pastured pork, grass-fed beef & wild Alaska salmon, as well as coconut oil, grass-fed butter and whatever there is in nuts & cheese. bmc, once you begin the material on carbs and diabetes, I think that would scare the pants off anyone.

    After doing a google search on the stuff, it looks as though a good quality brand is difficult to come by. One company seems to sell beef jerky and call it pemmican, I didn't see any lit stating the beef is grass fed. The other brand I saw had a variety of ingredients somewhat like a trail mix bar, but also had stuff like soy. Not lit stating it is organic or non-gmo.

    I tried it about 4 years ago and it honestly is really good. It keeps a very very long time too. There's lots of recipes on the web to make it yourself. Here's one example: http://www.grandpappy.info/rpemmica.htm

    This discussion now has me thinking about trying this, lol.

    Thanks Mellow, the question now is where to get a good quality animal fat. When I buy grass fed meat at the store, almost all of the fat has already been trimmed. I think I'll google goose fat. Since geese are not readily available in the grocery, perhaps the method of raising them is less factory and more healthy.

    Just for another healthy fat, Nora Gedgaudas uses organic casein-free ghee.

    You can buy grass fed meat at the store? Amazing, lol. I have a few suggestions: If it is local, find out where it is processed and see if they can save you some fat. Also, do you use bacon? Bacon fat would be great for pemmican. If you roast whole chickens, save the drippings, let the fat solidify and save the fat until you have enough.

    I get the grass fed at whole foods. It is from NY, but to difficult to track down or try to get to the farmer. I don't cook bacon although I love it, yum, and I haven't branched into roasting chickens yet. I need to give that a try.
    Reesacat, thanks for the name. She's not that easy to hear on my computer, so I couldn't catch the name.
