    Bert's Kitchen Witch's Note:

    This recipe comes from Carol Costenbader's cookbook, "Preserving The Harvest".The turkey is pre-cooked before going through the jerky-drying process, to eliminate the bacterial worries that are associated with raw poultry. This recipe involves a two day process, one day of marination time, and one day of drying time.* As per the reviewer, the fabulous mama's kitchen, the drying time on this recipe has been reduced from what it was as originally posted.

      This is really yummy! It did not take the 18 hours to dry though. I am glad that I checked it at 3 hrs. bc it was done. Maybe I sliced it thinner? Be sure to watch it closely. This has a wonderful flavor and a great texture. I am THRILLED to have found this and will keep this in my KEEPER file! Thanks Trace!
