One of my favorite comic strips that went away many years ago has returned and I couldn’t be more pleased.  Thanks to Berkeley Breathed for bringing this back to life and making my day a little brighter and filled with some good laughs.

Home Made

Sweet Potato Dog Chews - Treats - Jerky


Home Made - Sweet Potato Dog Chews / Treats / Jerky

Call them what you will, chews, treats or jerky, they are all edible and you dog will love when you make them at home.  And the fiber and protein in sweet potatoes is good for them.  You can make these in the oven or by using a dehydrator.

Oven method –
​•    To get started purchase two nice long, as straight as you can find, fresh sweet potatoes.  This will make a nice sized batch to test out your skills.
•    Preheat oven to 250˚
•    Line a large baking sheet with parchment paper.
•    Wash and scrub them clean, then dry them.  Make sure there is no mold on them.
•    Cut off one side of the sweet potato lengthwise, as close to the edge as possible.  This will make a nice flat side to place downward for stable slicing.  Cut the sweet potatoes into slices about 1/4 “ to 1/3” thick.
•    Place them on the prepared baking sheet.
•    Bake for about 3 hours, turning halfway through.   This will make them chewy and if you want more crunch add about 20-30 minutes.
•    Cool completely on a wire rack.•    

They should store in your refrigerator in a zipper bag for about 3 weeks, if they last that long.  They can be kept frozen for about 4 months.

Dehydrator method -•    
To get started purchase two nice long, as straight as you can find, fresh sweet potatoes.  This will make a nice sized batch to test out your skills.
•    Wash and scrub them clean, then dry them.  Make sure there is no mold on them.
•    Cut off one side of the sweet potato lengthwise, as close to the edge as possible.  This will make a nice flat side to place downward for stable slicing.   
•    Follow your dehydrators instructions for spacing.
•    Dehydrate at a setting of about 145-155 until done.  

Drying should take about 6-8 hours for a chewy texture.  For a crunchier texture dry out longer.Big dogs will love these as is, but for small dogs you might want to tear them into smaller pieces after they are dried out.Adapted from many recipes/articles I have read and recipes tried using both methods.
