Sweet Potato Chews!
It’s that time of year…time for sweet potatoes!
I love sweet potatoes, they are a super yummy and really good for me.
Sweet potato chews are a great alternative to the ever present rawhide chews, which contrary to pupular belief, really aren’t good for dogs. They present a choking hazard, and they don’t digest very easily and could become lodged in the intestines creating a dangerous health hazard. In addition, many rawhides are processed with chemicals which aren’t good for dogs either.
Wash a sweet potato (organic is best and we like to peel them). Cut down the middle lengthwise. Then cut long lengthwise slices about 1/3 of an inch wide and place them in a single layer on a cookie sheet (use a stainless steel sheet, for healthier cooking).
Put in the oven at 250 degrees for about 3 hours. This leaves them kind of chewy, but you could also bake them a little longer to get them crunchy.
Oh, and you can waffle cut them for more fun…Enjoy!
