Intro: Sweet Potato Jerky

Dogs love this wholesome and chewy treat.

One ingredient and no chemicals or preservatives

Easy to make in three different ways

Lets get started!

Step 1: Select Your Potato

For larger dogs, I like the Sweet Potato to be as large as possible.

Wash to insure there is no mold.

Step 2: Slice the Sweet Potato

Carefully cut the Sweet Potato length wise.

Step 3: Make Thick Slices

The Sweet Potato will shrink during dehydration. Cut them about 1/4 thick

Step 4: Place on Tray

Evenly space on a tray

Step 5: Method One Is Solar Dehydration

Place in the sun

Takes about a day this way. Turn over every few hours.

Bring inside as the day cools. The evening may bring dampness.

Step 6: Method Two Is Baking in the Oven

Bake at 225 F for 3-4 hours

Step 7: ​Method Three Is With a Dehydrator

155 F for 6-8 hours

Step 8: You Are Done?

Time will be different depending on the weather ( solar) and the thickness of the slice.

Don't stop until the jerky is a bit hard to bend.

Keep in a jar or sealed baggy to keep them from regaining moisture.

A desiccant packet is a plus

Toss to your pet for a treat that will keep them busy.
