I take about four cups of shredded, pounded dried meat (beef, deer, moose, antelope-don't use rabbit, pork, bear, etc because of potential parasite or disease problems) and mix in two cups of melted tallow (cool enough to touch but not cold). Sometimes folks mix in ground/grated dried fruit, but if you ever have to live on the stuff for long you may find that intolerable. To make different quantities, try to stay with the basic proportions of two parts meat to one part tallow. If you store this at room temperature, it will last a year or two- but the flavor gets rather strong (especially if you use game tallow).
