Sweet Potatos....not so much!!
« on: March 20, 2012, 11:02:23 AM »
Well, you know I have been having a ball experimenting with my new dehydrater and so far the beef jerky is the absolute best!! But over the weekend I dried some sweet potatos and I gotta tell ya...to ME they are good...to Jaimee, they are good...but when I give one to Joker he gets the most pitiful, stricken look on his face like I am trying to poison him...and then spits it across the room... :laugh4:

Gonna try apples next ....

LOL a bit dramatic isn't he? Abby is like that with certain food too...she will catch a piece of banana if I throw it to her, but once she realizes what it is she drops it like it's hot.  :laugh4:

LOL He's probably like....these are NOT sweet! You lied! Too funny. Mine love em, altho I haven't dried them out so wonder if that would make a difference. What else have you tried other than jerky? Would be curious if they like bananas too.

I am thrilled with the machine and so far all I have tried are the chicken jerky which turned great and they loved it...I also tried strips of bottom round roast and it smelled soooo good that I tried the first peice of it myself when it was done and it was fantastic!! And now this weekend the sweet potatos...I cut them in strips and they look like sweet potato fries and I thought they tasted great...the drying process really brought out the sweetness so snotty boy can just do without...Jaims and I will eat them!!  :laugh4:

I think Mic would be with Joker on this one. Now Zoey would take your arm off for one.

Chloe is like this with a lot of different things. If I give her a piece of banana, celery, potato, green pepper, etc she gets it just in her teeth or lips and then lays it on the floor. It will take her like 3 mins to break it all in tiny pieces and then finally eat it.

Macie just catches it and swallows and waits for the next bite. But she used to not eat green peppers until Bones taught her that they are yummy!

My dogs LOVE, LOVE, LOVE sweet potatoes but I've not tried dehydrated ones.  Hogan eats anything veggie/fruit wise.  Onyx, not so much but if she thinks Hogan is getting something she's not, she will at least take it in her mouth and taste it before spitting it out and walking away in disgust.
