A few months ago when we were preparing turkey for the holiday season, my son, who has taken up an interest in healthy food and cooking, considered experimenting with turkey jerky. It’s a great alternative to beef and would be interesting to try.
Curious, I went looking around for turkey jerky recipes. None of the three listed below require fancy dehydrators.
1. Turkey jerky made with sriracha chili sauce — probably one my son would try, since he’s a sriracha lover:

There’s also an Oven Beef Jerky recipe on this site.
2. Turkey jerky made with fresh ground black pepper:

3. Turkey jerky — super simple and pure.

There are many variations of turkey jerky recipes available online that use different spices and seasonings. If you should happen to try making turkey jerky before we do, drop me a comment on how it turned out!
And, of course, if the 18-year-old gourmet chef in this household makes the attempt, I will write another blog post.
