Summary
Find out the dates, history and traditions of National Jerky Day

Jerky is a type of meat that has been cut into strips and dried to prevent spoilage. The meat is typically seasoned with spices, salt, and sometimes sugar before being dried, which gives it a distinctive flavor.

Jerky can be made from a variety of meats, including beef, turkey, chicken, pork, and even fish. Traditionally, jerky was made by Native Americans and early settlers as a way to preserve meat for long periods of time. Today, jerky is a popular snack food that is often found in convenience stores, gas stations, and grocery stores.

Jerky is often low in fat and high in protein, which makes it a popular choice for people who are trying to eat a healthier diet or who are following a low-carbohydrate or high-protein diet. However, some commercial brands of jerky may be high in sodium, so it is important to read the nutrition labels carefully. Homemade jerky can be a healthier option because you can control the ingredients and seasoning.
