Organic Sweet Potato Chews Recipe for Dogs
(Always Use Organic When You Can)
Wash a sweet potato (yam), the really orange variety. Cut down the middle lengthwise. Then cut long lengthwise slices about 1/4 of an inch wide (for crispier chews) and place them in a single layer on a cookie sheet. If your dog prefers chewier, cut a little thicker, about 1/3 of an inch wide. Always err on the thicker side. You can also cut them french-fry style!
Put in the oven at 250 degrees for about 3 hours. This leaves them kind of chewy, but you could also bake them a little longer to get them crunchy.
If you have a dehydrator, place them neatly (not touching) on your dehydrating trays and set at 125 degrees F. I let them dehydrate overnight, about 12 hours. I really, really, really LOVE my Nesco Food Dehydrator, and it has served me very well over the years! It comes with 4 square trays (expandable to 8 trays total), and puts out 700 watts of drying power for quicker dehydrating! I highly recommend!
REMEMBER to either refrigerate or freeze all natural treats to avoid spoilage and insect infestation.
