Things around the new homestead have been sorta quiet.
Watching the snow melt is a highlight! I did manage to
put together another quilt top which I'll show you later
in another post.
I was poking around different dog food sites and decided
to make Julep and Derby some dried sweet potato
treats. To buy a bag of pre-dried sweet potato's is
around $8.00 from a manufacturer.
So to make these treats ... the first thing I did was
scrub & dry the potato. Next decision - how to slice.
I decided on thin rounds.
Next I dump the slices in a zip lock bag with a little
Olive oil. Gave them a good shake and placed them on
a parchment lined baking sheet. Next is optional -
adding a little cinnamon on one side of the potato.
I decided to leave half plain ... just in case.
The oven was preheated to 250 because they are slowly
dried for approx 3 hours. Here are the potato's half
way through the drying process after I flipped them.
The finished treats ... with a BIG westie seal of approval.
Since I only give them a few a day this batch should
last them for a week.
Will I make these again - you bet!
