Training Treats - Pet Treat Maker

1 lb ground beef
1/2 cup red kidney beans, canned
1 cup zucchini, fresh, grated
1/2 cup applesauce
1/2 teaspoon sage, finely ground

  • Sautee ground beef, breaking up chunks as meat is cooking, until all
    meat is crumbled

  • Drain liquid from kidney beans & save liquid

  • Put beans & zucchini in food processor or blender & puree until a
    thick paste

  • Add meat, applesauce & sage to mixture in processor & puree. If
    mixture is too thick add some of the liquid from the beans but just enough to
    process. There should be no chunks of meat or beans when done

  • Put round tip on the Jerky Works™ Kit gun & then fill
    jerky gun with mixture

  • Squeeze out 4" long treats on dehydrator trays (If there are chunks
    of meat or red kidney beans, the jerky gun will clog.)

  • Dehydrate in your Open Country® Dehydrator for 3-5 hours
    depending on how wet the mixture is. Treats are done when completely dry

  • When treats are cool, they may be broken up into training treat-sized
    Store in an airtight container in the refrigerator. Excess may be frozen.
