A preserved mashed mixture of fat and plant food. Tastes bland, but not offensive. It lasts a very long time without refrigeration.
Pemmican is a mixture of meat and vegetarian items. It can be purchased from traders or can be prepared by a cook after the process has been researched. However, no cooking skill is required to create it. It is prepared at an electric stove, fueled stove or a campfire and requires 0.25 nutrition of meat (5 meat) and 0.25 nutrition of vegetarian items (5 fruit or vegetables). A completed bill produces 18 pemmican. Each pemmican restores only 5% saturation, but up to 20 can be consumed in one sitting.
It makes an ideal food for caravans as it lasts long and is lightweight. It shouldn't be used for preparing food for daily use though, rather you should cook fine meals instead which provide the same total nutrition but has an additional +5 mood boost.
