During World War II, my grandparents, Erina and "Siro" were living in Italy. My grandfather was in the military and heading off to war. My grandmother wanted to make sure he and his troop had meals they could carry with them that also last several days. So, Grandma Erina started drying meat with different Italian spices to give it traditional flavors, creating the Original Italian Jerky.
As children growing up, we forget all the sacrifices our parents and grandparents make for us to ensure we have a good life and freedom. It was something they fought for! And so, when we moved to the beautiful USA, yet still proud of our Italian heritage, we wanted to bring our Best Italian flavors to the Best American tradition: The Jerky.
Thanks to my Grandma's creativity, we are so excited to be able to use her Original Italian Jerky recipes in our products. Anyone who tastes our Jerky says, "IT'S THE BEST JERKY I'VE EVER HAD!" for me, it is like Grandma Erina is still with us.
We are so excited about the Jerky that we also decided to sell the spices!
However, the word "spices" is not really accurate. Those who have tried it say, "it's a sauce in a powder!" in fact, it is!
The spices are so great that as soon as you start using them, You can't stop - they simplify your life so much! It just takes a spoonful of spices and a few tablespoons of hot water to instantly create a delicious sauce for your pasta or meal. It's so easy; everyone can do it!
