I am currently reading a book about the History of Food Preservation ( VERY interesting book) and a whole chapter of this book is dedicated to Pemmican. It seems that this preserved food played a very important role to the History of USA. According to the author Pemmican is still consumed by travellers or lovers of camping. I wonder if anybody has tasted Pemmican. Do the contemporary Americans consider pemmican as part of their culinary tradition? The book : Sue Shephard,Pickled,Potted and Canned. The story of Food preserving, Headline 2000 Sue Sheppard is also the co-author of United Tastes of America.
