"Recipe for making jerky. Obtain some type of meat, slice it into pieces about half of an inch thick. Hang the pieces on a laundry line or something like it and leave out in the sun for maybe 6 months... Well, that's what my recipe says. When eaten, you recover about 150 HP."
EarthBound item description

Beef Jerky is a healing item that can be found in EarthBound and Mother 3.

EarthBound[]

It restores about 150 HP, and is best paired with a ketchup packet. This item can be bought at Scaraba for $70. There are also two other types of jerky: Spicy Jerky, which recovers 300 HP, and Luxury Jerky, which recovers 400 HP.

Mother 3[]

Beef Jerky reappears in Mother 3; though it heals only 60 HP, it is a far more common item, often found in gift boxes and as a drop from various enemies. The other types of jerky in this game are Doggy Jerky and Double Jerky.
