Sweet Potato Jerky for Dogs
A healthy and super simple treat
Use fresh, raw sweet potatoes, preferably large ones.
Preheat the oven to 225 F (107 C).
Scrub the sweet potatoes, making sure there is no mold on the skins. The number of potatoes you use will depend on the amount of jerky strips you want to make.
Cut the sweet potatoes lengthwise into 1/2- to 2/3-inch strips, and place them on a parchment-lined baking sheet.
Bake the sweet potato strips for 3 to 4 hours. For crunchier treats, bake them longer. (Don't be afraid to test them yourself along the way.)
Allow the strips to cool before storing them in an airtight container.
- As with all jerky, monitor your pet and adjust the size of the pieces so they are appropriate for your dog and do not present a choking hazard.
- Make sure the skins are not moldy, as this may harm your pet.
