Sweet Potato Treats for Furbabies...

The furbabies treat jar is getting low & dehydrated sweet potatoes is their favorite treat. These are my three furbabies & today is the day to make sweet potato treats for my puppies. As you are able to see, they really like sweet potato treat day.
Plus, the great bonus on this is; that if you need some sweet potatoes for dinner you could rehydrate the treats.





This is so simple. First, I slice the sweet potatoes: about a half inch slice and cut in half if needed.
I parboil (cooked until just soft) the sweet potatoes.
After they cooled, I squash them flat (skin and all) on a cutting board. Then place them on the dehydrator trays.





Set the temperature for 125 degrees and let them roll, until the are crisp.




Afterwards I simply tear them into smaller pieces. Now the treat jar is full again.

Just a couple extra tips:
I actually have both a Presto Dehydrator and an Excalibur 9 tray Dehydrator. 
1) I mostly use my Presto for smelly foods, which I make Mr. Perky take to the garage.  One of the neat things about the Presto is that you can purchase and add more trays that expands your capacity greatly.
2) The other items I have on hand and use frequently is the fruit roll up trays. But I use them in my Excalibur. The trays are thin, round, without holes in them and I actually have 8 & they just slide onto the Excalibur trays. Super helpful when you are doing liquid type dehydrating. 


What I do here is simply share our preparedness journey. If you liked this post we would love it if you joined our Perky Prepping Gramma community on Facebook, comment or share. Plus it would just make my day.
