Long Beach Jerky Co. created the holiday to celebrate small-batch jerky producers and the desire to bring craft jerky home. Richie Beckman and Alex Naticchioni are the founders. They were inspired by Naticchioni‚Äôs grandfather, Richie Beckman, who made his famous beef jerky each Christmas. He also used to put jerky into their stockings in Colorado.
Naticchoni soon joined his gramps to continue the tradition of learning these recipes. After Richie, his friend, moved to Long Island Beach. They decided to spend a weekend jerky-making and beer tasting. This idea became a business. Long Island Jerky Company was thus born.
National Craft Jerky Day honors all small-batch jerky producers who have passed down their unique craft and delicious flavors to future generations. Long Beach Jerky Co. hosts parties throughout the year to honor the traditions of the past.
This basic recipe for sweet maple pork jelly from Jerkyholic is a great way to start your crafting career. It’s a simple and delicious recipe that you can make yourself.
Take a tenderloin of pork and slice it into strips. Next, coat the pork with maple syrup and any other ingredients you think would work well for this recipe. To make the dish more flavorful and balanced, you can add ginger, cayenne and soy sauce to it.
Let it marinate for at least 20 hours. After the pork has been marinated, place it on a plate and dry it in a dehydrator. For this recipe, it is best to keep the temperature at 165 F for at least 4 hours. This recipe is a favorite of mine. Use #craftjerkyday to share it with your friends.
