November 27, 2020 – Black Friday | National Craft Jerky Day

Some Call It Craft Jerky And Others Call It… Well, You Decide.

Welcome to November 27th, 2020 on the National Day Calendar. Today we celebrate heaven on earth for shoppers and meat lovers. 

Congratulations! You made it through Thanksgiving with your family. Now brace yourself for the start of the Christmas shopping season. Here comes Black Friday! It’s a great day to find amazing deals on gifts for friends and family. Shopping today is hectic, but certainly not awful, so why does it have such a bleak name? Through most of the year, retailers operate making small profits or losing money, which is known as “being in the red.” But when Christmas shopping starts, sales go way up, and they begin to turn bigger profits, which means “being in the black.” Hence, Black Friday. I don’t know about you Marlo, but I’m holding out for online shopping.

The preservation of meat by smoking or drying has been around for a very long time.  Evidence of meat jerky is even found in the tombs of ancient Egypt.  And this makes sense when you realize that refrigeration has only been around a relatively short while.  But today we celebrate the artisanal flair of the folks who produce craft jerky with everything from elk to earthworms and even soybeans and mushrooms.  If your mouth suddenly stopped watering, it’s okay.  Your taste buds may only be geared for the traditional beef kind originally produced by the South American tribes of the Andes.   On National Craft Jerky Day prepare your palate for something savory and something more adventurous if you dare.
