Episode 69: Smoked Meat
The Sediq, who live near mountains and forests have always been excellent hunters. Every time, they could bring back a lot of meat, sometimes more than they can bring home. In this episode, Taws uses experimentation to show kids why elders need to smoke meat, and how they preserve food without a refrigerator. Through heat, the quality of protein changes, moisture decreases, but the nutritional value stays the same. It is just one of the many indigenous methods for preserving food.
