Now that @mlemweb is also vegetarian, and since she is a jerky enthusiast, I have been trying to figure out how to make veggie jerky cheap at home (the store bought stuff is $$$). Yesterday I tried slicing up some veggie hot dogs and tofurkey sausages and put them in the dehydrator. Pretty good; the thinly sliced ones did best. But it was hard to get such a thin slice.

Then this morning! It hit me! Veggie lunchmeat... it's already sliced thin! So I'm going to try that.

Backpacking Chef has some ideas on how to do that with normal lunchmeat

And the good news is: veggie lunchmeat tends to be much leaner; that's good, the main thing people advocate is that you need a lean cut or else it goes rancid!

@cwebber @mlemweb You could try to freeze it slightly to be able to cut thinner slices...

@ckeen @mlemweb Yeah I have heard that's a good way to do it!

It's also the recommended way to eat the mystery meat in Pixel Dungeon :)

@cwebber @mlemweb That or you can cook it by throwing it into fire or stew it in an alchemy bowl
@cwebber @mlemweb

alchemy pot it's called in shattered pixel dungeon

@ckeen @mlemweb I thought you were still giving me IRL cooking advice. But happy to see a pivot to joining me in nerding out about pixel dungeon :D


Sorry for that invisible shift of attention. Also sorry to @mlemweb
for switching the subject :)
@cwebber @mlemweb You can also make meat pie with a food ration, meat and a pie
