    1      gal           water

 Cut beef strips 1/2 inch thick by 1 inch wide.  String onto a piece of wire or
 cord.  Dip into boiling brine solution (1 cup salt to 1 gallon water) until
 meat loses its red color.  Remove beef from water and let drip dry.  Hang near
 a fire, but not so close as to cook the beef.  May be air dried or sun dried,
 but this takes much longer (days or weeks), and the beef must be protected
 from insects.
