Easy Homemade Turkey Jerky Recipe

Introduction: Easy Homemade Turkey Jerky Recipe

This easy & cheap homemade turkey jerky recipe requires only a conventional oven but you can still use a dehydrator if you happen to have one! Jerky in general is a great high protein snack option for road trips, hiking, or school/work. Unfortunately many store bought jerkies are quite expensive and packed with chemicals and added sugar. This homemade turkey jerky is easy to make and a lot cheaper & healthier than store bought counterparts. You can also use beef or pork for this recipe if turkey is a bit expensive in your area.
