~*~These didn't turn out chewy like I expected and had hoped they would. Maybe I should have cooked them longer than three hours. Tomorrow I'm going to make some more and slice them long like spears. I also plan on cooking them a little longer than three hours.~*~
Chewy or not, Bandit absolutely ♥LOVES♥ them and devoured five in a row once they cooled! If anyone has made these before and knows the trick to making them truly chewy, I'd love to know what the secret is. I did recheck the recipe and it says that they continue to dry while cooling, so maybe tomorrow morning they'll be more of a chewy texture.
We originally asked Papa to pick up a sweet potato on his way home from work. He brought home this pale sweet potato. We forgot to tell him it needed to be an orange sweet potato/yam.
After a quick trip to the grocery store for an orange sweet potato, making dog snacks was underway.
"I think we're on the right track now."
"Are they ready yet? I've been outside twice, pooped once, chased Simba through the house, had my toenails trimmed, and took a good long nap. Three hours is too long!"
All done! We can store them in the fridge for up to three weeks, and in the freezer for up to four months.
