In preparation for tomorrow nights "puppy class" I have made a fresh batch of homemade Liver treats. This is the second batch I have made, the first went down well and at just 49p ago, they are far cheaper than commercially available packets. Ideal for coaxing a hound to learn new tricks.
The liver is human grade from Asda
The packet is emptied into a pan of boiling water
Jessie the kitchen maid is never far away
The liver is simmered until it is cooked all the way through.
I test this by occasionally snipping a big piece with scissors and checking for blood
Once cooked, it is fished out, rinsed and put on the chopping board
Ever hopeful Jessie watches on
To really get into the "man feeds wolf" mode a BIG knife is required.
The chunks are chopped into small treat size pieces
It only takes 10 mins or so, but the maid starts to doze
The diced liver is placed on a baking tray and placed
in the oven for 5mins to dry out a touch
At this point a taste test is required.
Out of the oven the treats pass the Jessie taste test
Placed in a bowl lined with kitchen roll they are left to cool.
Last time this amount was divided into 4 food bags, 3 of which were frozen.
The entire batch will provide treats for the next 2 weeks.
