Take a sweet potato, peel it and slice it into strips. Place strips on a baking sheet and bake @ 250 for about 2 hours. Great dogs treats, my dogs LOVE them.

After the last indecent we have had enough with problematic dog treats. I bought a food dehydrator, and I am now making my own. We now are getting more bang for our buck. It's cheaper to give them fresh lean meats that are cut into strip and dried. It's also safer, the quality is high. A large bag of chicken treats cost $15. 5 pounds of fresh chicken breast when on sale cost $5. A rump roast cut into strip cost about $8-10, and makes a ton of dog treats. This is safe and fresh, and cheap. The dehydrator is the best $30.00 I ever spent.
