    Storage Food Review: Homemade Beef Jerky - 8 Year Update!

    In 2011 we made some beef jerky. I’ve kept it in a drawer in my refrigerator since to see how long it will last stored that way. We did an initial update after 4 years. Here is that video:

    This is our 8 year update. I’ll keep updating this every few years until it goes bad or I leave YouTube whichever comes first.

    Bottom line: Still good.

    Ha-Ha....next time I clean out my fridge and cupboards I gotta invite my buddy over for some "taste testing"...even if the stuff looks back at us.

    Edit to add:


    Hope we're all around to get the 50 year update on the jerky. Love these videos.

    It will be in a blender by then, but probably still good. :p

    Eat enough of those and you won't need an embalmer when you kick the bucket!

    That's pretty cool! I had no clue jerky could last that long stored the way you did.

    I look forward to the 12 year update!

    :cheers:
