This is probably a rudimentary question, but I've not found an answer online. I just dehydrated some ground beef-- cooked/rinsed/patted in the traditional manner so as to remove as much fat as possible, and dried at 155 degrees F for ~8 hours. Now I wonder: how long will it last if I store it in a Ziploc bag (that is: not vacuum sealed) at room temperature? And how much longer would it last if I added in a desiccant?
Thanks in advance...
