Yes, the little drinking glass-type jars. Well salted, keeps for years, regardless of the date on the container, in my experience. I have to soak it in water before I use it, too much salt otherwise. In the army, it was called S.O.S., we had it when I was a kid and as stated above, I've also maintained it as a tradition. It's one of the few things that I do well in the kitchen. Somewhere along the line, I started substituting Jimmy Dean sausage meat, very yummy.Chipped dried beef
Army S.O.S. wasn't made with actual canned, chipped beef. As I recall, they used hamburger meat. Which is okay too.
