A few years back I wrote a top ten list of Paleo foods to store. On that list I picked Biltong as one of the top items. Biltong if you’ve never heard of it is a dry pickled meat from south africa. In the article I stated that it beat out jerky for several reasons. Biltong unlike jerky is still very moist. It has a concentrated flavor that is not salty. When I wrote that post the only way to get biltong was to make it yourself. I tried to find a commercial biltong maker for you guys and could not. Recently I had a comment on the article from a company in the US that makes Biltong. I checked them out and sent them an email asking if they would be willing to send me a sample for review. Braaitime Cured meats and the wonderful Nicolle sent out samples and I have some thoughts to share.
Join James and Mike this week as we tackle topics such as. Cheap gas and what is really means. The EPA is protecting us from wood burning stoves. The main topic this week is paleo for noobs. I got an email on how to get started on paleo.
Many people would love to get started on paleo but don’t know how. What is paleo and what do you eat? What are the rules to follow and what ones can be broken. Mike and I answer your questions on all things paleo. James shares tips with you on how to be successful. Mike shares his experience when he went hardcore paleo. The wild edible of the week is Black Walnuts and Butternuts. Bill Molison is the Permaculture Minute from the Permaculture playing cards.
You can really geek out on the science of why to eat a paleo diet. If you are interested in that I suggest picking up Robb Wolf’s Book The Paleo Solution. It was what got me started on paleo. Robb digs deep into the science behind why eating this way is good for you.
