The students of Parkdale Elementary made their own pemmican.  You can do it too! 

Pemmican is very easy to make. You will need a big bowl to mix all of your ingredients.

You will need some dried fruit. We used raisins and cranberries. We also mixed in some fresh raspberries.

You will also need some lard or vegetable shortening.

Here are the cranberries we used.

Don't forget to add the shredded beef jerky! Then you mix it all together. Then you are ready to spread it onto some wax paper. Enjoy!!
