|After some experimentation I have come up with a easy to make dried sausage. Take any type of prepared beef stick or summer sausage. Make sure that it does not say "refridgerate after opening," on the wrapper.
Slice into sections about 3/16 of an inch thick- thicker peices take longer to dry. Place on the racks of a dehydrator- high temp for one hour and then place on the lowest setting. You will get an accumulation of grease off the slices that will drip down to the lowest level. Everyday you should check these and blot the grease off the slices and turn them. When completely dry store in a cloth sack in a cool dark location. I have some that were prepared 6 months ago and when stored this way are still in good shape today.
Eat either dry or toss into a stew to reconstitute.
