Sweet Potato dog treats in a Dehydrator
You said that a dehydrator is recommended however, you didn't provide a recipe for that, you only included oven directions. Maybe it's just me and using a food dehydrator is self explanatory but I would have been interested in knowing how long and at what temperature. Looking forward to trying this healthy recipe for my 7 dogs!
Chef's Answer ~ Each dehydrator will be a little different due to the difference in shapes and wattage capacities. It's best to consult the manual of your dehydrator machine. If you don't have the manual, often you can find the specific make and model manual online.
The temperature you choose will depend on if you want the dried sweet potatoes to be "live", as in with the enzymes and such still intact or if you just want to dry the sweet potatoes.
If you want RAW, then a low temperature, usually not above 115 degrees. To dry the sweet potatoes you can use a higher temperature such as 140 degrees.
The time it takes to dry the sweet potatoes depends on the temperature you choose, the size and thickness of your slices and the humidity in your environment. You will need to factor at least 4 hours, but will need to check for your desired amount level of dryness.
I hope this helps. Happy Dog Treat Baking! :)
