When it comes to culinary creations, let's be honest...some are hit or miss.

Here in Big Sky Country, we're known for a few foods that might raise an eyebrow or two.  Of course, the first one that comes to mind is Rocky Mountain Oysters. For some, it's a real treat, for others, it's an absolute deal breaker. Pasties are another local favorite, along with porkchop sandwiches and anything with huckleberries.

However, according to one publication, the "weirdest food" in Montana just might be an acquired taste.

So which Montana food is considered the weirdest?  According to Parentztalk that would be pemmican. For those not familiar with the dish, it originated in Canada and is a mixture of a few different things. According to the article, pemmican can be described as the following:

"Made out of lean meat that's been sliced and dried, and then pounded into a powder, pemmican is then mixed with dried berries and mixed with animal fat."

Pemmican is often made out of game such as bison, deer, elk, or moose. Although you can use other proteins such as fish, fowl, or beef.

The history of the dish is certainly an interesting one, going back hundreds of years and a staple in the Native American community. It was something that could be made in large quantities and used as a source of food while traveling as it didn't require refrigeration. In fact, the dish is still popular today within certain cultures.
