Real, traditionally made pemmican is very intense. It’s a traditional
Native American food composed of ground, dried jerky, fat paste, and
possibly some dried berries, says
JMF, who has experience making and
eating it. The berries add a sweetness and tartness, but it’s probably
not something to eat other than as survival food. As it ages, the
rendered fat and meat powder develop a very strong flavor that not
everyone will appreciate. Modern pemmican made from high-quality meat,
duck fat, and berries might be an experience for the culinarily
adventurous, but it’s not exactly dinner party fare.
