Lucky, Lucky Dogs

My dogs LOVE sweet potatoes.  (Jenny, in particular, loves sweet potatoes.)  

Over the years, I've purchased several types of dehydrated sweet potato snacks for the J-pups, with this one being their hands-down favorite.  But they're expensive.  And a bit oversized.  And despite being made with "all natural" ingredients right here in US, they seem a bit . . . overly preserved.

So I decided to put my dehydrator (purchased primarily for harvesting herbs, but capable of oh-so-much more) to use and try to make some myself.  A little research on the interwebs convinced me it couldn't be more simple.

Wash potatoes.

Place in dehydrator.

Dehydrate for about 12 hours (or so).

And - voilà - sweet potato snacks!

Admittedly, not as "pretty" as the Big Boyz . . .

But just as welcome by the J-pups!

(Cheap, too.)

Lucky, lucky dogs!

Awww... they are sitting so nicely awaiting their treat. What a great idea to make your own. Is it a jerky like consistency?

claudia

I never knew there was such a thing as a dehydrator. Can it make fruit leather/dried fruit?

margene

Great idea! Are they really as easy as slice, dehydrate, eat? If the pups like them, you're onto something!

Patty

I'll design your packaging! :-) Lucky dogs!

Rachel

Oh my you are spoiling even the dogs :)

Debbie

That is a great idea! I love the looks on the faces of your pups as they wait for their treats!

Carole

Spoiled dogs! Hurrah!

Vicki

Lucky dogs! I had no idea dogs would like something like that.

Mary

I'm glad the dogs are happy, but those chips look good to me, too! what do you think? maybe with a chunky homemade blue cheese dip?

Jo

They are lucky dogs! My dogs love asparagus and broccoli. They hear the snap and they're in the kitchen! Who said our canine friends are strictly carnivores?

Excellent! Lucky pups, indeed!
