I've never had trouble with jerky spoiling. I keep it in the freezer until I
am about to go hiking. I would think that whoever send you your maildrops
could keep it froze until it was mailed to you, just to be safe.
I never use any preservatives--which brings up the question--does anyone use
I never have yet, but perhaps there are certain fruits that really need it.
I have a vacuum packer that I use (cost $50) also, which could make a
difference in things spoiling or not. I didn't use to use it, and the jerky
was fine then too.
