Wikipedia: Jerky
Jerky is lean trimmed meat that has been cut into strips and dried (dehydrated) to prevent spoilage. Normally, this drying includes the addition of salt to prevent bacteria growth before the meat has finished the dehydrating process. The word “jerky” derives from the Quechua word ch’arki which means “dried, salted meat”. All that is needed to produce basic “jerky” is a low-temperature drying method, and salt to inhibit bacterial growth.

Mmm, the consistency of good beef jerky is when it resembles something between “a stick and a leather belt.” Love it.

Beef jerky is delicious, even if it has the texture of old shoe leather.

Beef jerky is essentially the space between old meat and leather.

Scientist here! Beef jerky is expensive because it’s made from Italian shoe leather.
