       Title: Tofu Jerky
  Categories: Home Cookin,
       Yield: 6
 
     1/2 c  Soy sauce
       3 tb To 4 tb liquid smoke
     1/8 c  Water
       1 tb Onion powder
       1 ts Garlic powder or
       1 cl crushed fresh garlic
       1 tb Fresh ground black pepper
       1 ts Honey
       1 lb Firm or extra firm tofu
 
   Cut and drain the tofu. I usually take a 1 lb cube, cut it in
   half,and then slice it into strips on its short side. Strips
   should be about 4-5 mm in thickness. They may look big, but
   they'll shrink to about half their size.
 
   Mix all the marinade ingredients together well. Put the tofu in a
   single layer in a shallow baking pan orcookie sheet and pour the
   marinade over it. Let soak for several hours or overnight.
 
   Drain excess liquid (and reuse!) and dry tofu in food dehydrator
   or warm (200 F) oven. This will take probably 4-8 hours,
   depending on weather. If you livein a sunny, dry climate
   (Colorado in the summer), you can sun dry it, it'll take all day.
 
   If you dry indoors in the winter, your house gets filled with a
   wonderful smoky smell. If you're drying in the oven, you'll need
   to flip the tofu over hourly so it dries evenly. The stuff is
   delicious and keeps indefinitely. Dry the stuff until it’s very
   chewy, but not crispy.
 
   Be creative: Use low-sodium soy if you want less salt (it is
   rather salty) Use tabasco or ground cayenne if you want it hot.
   Chili powder makes chili jerky. Oregano and basil makes pizza
   jerky. From:richichi@lamar.ColoState.EDU (Mike Richichi)
