We broke down and bought a dehydrator so I could make my own sweet potato treats and not have to worry that something made in china might make Siena sick or worse. I made my first batch last night.

Got me wondering if anyone has recipes (no poultry) or ideas for other treats?? There are a couple of ones in the book.

Thanks wink

Thanks, Destiny. I'd have to do an alternate meat (she is allergic to poultry). Beef would work smile

We mix steel cut oats with ground buffalo to give her meds. I made a couple mini parties and put it in to see if that is an option wink

For beef, you don't need a recipe. Just slice thin and spread out in the dehydrator. That's all my DH does and the dogs (and us,too) love it just like that.
We watch for sales on beef and try to get things like London Broil or top round roasts so there's not a huge amount of fat to have to remove.

DianaB— we have a dehydrator also, love it and use it 99% for the dogs at the moment.

• London Broil makes a great Beef Jerky, (we always buy on sale)

Less expensive items here for us, like 99¢ a pound or less are: (they love these).
• Kidneys, Beef • Heart, Beef • Liver, Beef (takes a really long time to dehydrate the liver, but they love it)

New item:
• Lamb Chops

Would you like pictures of the process?
*Note: we freeze all meat we can’t dehydrate that day and found that the semi-defrosted meat cuts better and dehydrate drier.
We do not season any of their food. They really love it warm off the rack, takes only about 3½—4 hours.

Here is the Cookbook—Link that came with the machine, tells you how long stuff takes.

I’ve also dehydrated lemon peel for us. My friend makes everything, bananas, apples, etc.
You can make regular potatoes in there too, but the question for us is to blanch or not to blanch first, I’m told the only difference is the color of the end product.
Good luck.

My mom makes and sells homemade dehydrated jerky. She doesn't have any recipes; they are just meat only.

My dog's personal favorite is beef heart...very lean if you cut the fat off and easy to break into smaller pieces smile

Our favorite Beef Jerky recipe.
I hope you don’t mind me putting a few pictures up here when we first made beef jerky for the boys. I didn’t include all the pictures, but I have the step by step.

• Nesco® Dehydrator and Jerky Maker (500 watts, Model FD-61).

• Bought some Beef Round Sirloin Tip London Broil, Boneless, $2.99/lb and Certified Angus Beef Round Top, $3.17/lb

Hand slicing the meat


Filling as much meat as possible onto all of the trays


• Set to 160°

1 piece is ¼ oz of 100% Beef!


Made 7 — 4oz bags that first day.
It doesn't last long, but we store it the refrigerator & freezer.

Well, that’s our Beef Jerky Making recipe! Again, hope you don't mind the pictures.
