Suet dilemma
« on: March 15, 2009, 11:39:12 pm »
I'm hoping to make pemmican for a backpacking trip later this week, and so far I haven't been able to find a supplier of grass-fed suet that I could get today or tomorrow. I might be able to get grain-fed suet, but then I'm concerned about having to suppliment for nutrients.

If I'm unable to get grass-fed suet, is there any way I can compensate for nutrients while using grain-fed on a camping trip?

Another thing to add:

If I end up using grain-fed suet for pemmican, for about 4 days total, will that be a problem? Or is it just less optimal?

If it makes any difference I can get grass-fed bones with marrow, which I think can be used to make pemmican. However, I know that suet would be a better deal, since with marrow bones you pay for mostly bone weight. Most places around here aren't going to have any suet until summer.

That amount of time shouldn't be a problem. But in the future when you get a good amount of grass fed suet you should render a bunch of it and keep that so that you can make pemmican any time.

Lex says that he has in the past been forced to eat raw  grainfed meats. He says that he just takes multiple doses of low-quality cod-liver oil capsules to compensate for the lack of omega 3 fatty acids in the grainfed meat.

Re pemmican:- Yes, the beauty of pemmican is that you can order large amounts and store them for years. I would suggest using the marrow as I've heard that the native americans prized the taste of the marrow-pemmican more. As for the quantity of marrow per bone,
it all depends on the supplier. I've received crappy bones with hardly any marrow in them, other times I've received decent bones with huge amounts of marrow in them.

The cod liver oil capsules sounds like a good idea. I'll have to get the capsules, I already have cod liver oil, but it's in straight liquid form.

I know that the place where I get grass-fed meat will have marrow bones, but currently they don't, as I bought the last four packages a few weeks ago. Theirs are generally pretty good I guess for having the parts with the most marrow

The cod liver oil doesn't have to be in capsule form. if your  cod liver oil is in a boottle, that's fine/
