The Herky, "Jerky" Shuffle
Unlike the dance craze mentioned in the title of this article and the band of boys going by the same name, the jerky we will be discussing is a food item. Specifically spicy jerky is our recommendation on this favorite American snack.
Jerky is simply extremely lean, dried meat, minus any fat that is cut into strips and treated with salt to prevent bacterial growth. This creation is then marinated with spices before being slowly heated to it's desired dry texture.
The trick to spicy jerky is that the ingredients added are that of the hot and spicy variety. Typical of these are jalapeno or habanero chiles and cayenne pepper.
Overall, spicy jerky is a healthy, affordable treat. The only drawback is for people on a sodium restricted diet as the salt concentration can be high. Otherwise a 30 gram portion contains 1 gram of fat, 0-3 grams of carbohydrates and 10 to 15 grams of protein. Spicy Jerky makes a great holiday gift, in that it will remain edible for months without refrigeration.
