Saskatoon Pemmican Recipe
   1 c  Jerky; beef or venison
   1 c  Dried Saskatoon berries or dried blueberries
   1 c  Unroasted sunflower seeds or crushed nuts of any kind
   2 ts Honey
 1/4 c  Peanut butter
 1/2 ts Cayenne [optional]

This version uses peanut butter rather than melted suet or lard as the
binding agent, which is more palatable for today's health conscious

Grind [or pound -JW] the dried meat to a mealy powder. Add the dried
berries and seeds or nuts. Heat the honey, peanut butter and cayenne
until softened. Blend. When cooled, store in a plastic bag or sausage
casing in a cool dry place. It will keep for months.
