  • 1 cup Coconut Milk
  • 1/2 tablespoon Cinnamon

  • 4 whole Basil Leaves
  • 2 cups Water more if needed

  • Place on a cookie sheet 1/2 inches apart, brush with marinade for additional flavor.
  • Dry in an oven, with the door slightly open to let out moisture, for about 3 to 4 hours, until meat is dry appearance and texture.


If you have a food dehydrator that can be used to dry the meat as well, just follow the manufactures instructions.
