Do you have a dog treat recipe that uses tart cherry juice concentrate?
My dog has very bad hips and the cherry treats do help ease his pain, but they are too expensive.
Chef's Answer ~ No, I'm sorry I don't have any recipes that specifically call for tart cherry juice concentrate. However, I do currently have one cherry dog treat recipe. It's my Cherry Oatmeal Muffin recipe.
I haven't tried this personally, but after doing some research, it seems like you can replace some of the liquids in baked homemade dog treats with juice concentrate. You'll have to experiment a little, so make small batches at first. My best thought is to try to mix a batter together that sticks together when you squeeze it between your fingers. So, if the dough seems too dry, add more concentrate, if it's too moist, add a little extra flour. Then use a cookie scooper to form little balls of dough. Flatten them to make a cookie, or leave them rounded for a softer treat. Then bake for approximately 10 minutes at 350. Be sure to check them often so they don't burn.
This is all my best guess, so please use your best judgment while experimenting and substituting with other dog treat recipes.
I hope this helps. Happy Dog Treat Baking! :)
