If you’re like the dog loving members of The Triangle committee, you want the best for your furry friends and might be sceptical about the quality of some of the treats on offer in the stores as well as baulking at their prices.
The answer is to make your own!
This way, you know that what you’re giving your dog is top quality and especially when you buy the livers when on sale, you’re getting a lot of treats for a very small price.
500 grams lambs fry
3/4 cup polenta
1/4 cup water or milk
1 carrot, finely grated
1 apple, grated
splash olive oil
Cut the lambs fry into chunks.
Put all the ingredients into a food processor and blend until smooth.
Line a lasagna dish with greaseproof paper and pour in the batter.
Bake for 35 – 45 minutes or until you start to smell it (it smells pretty good!).
Cool for ten minutes or so in the pan.
Invert the ‘cake’ onto a wire rack and lose the greaseproof.
When cool, cut into treat sized pieces to suit your pup and freeze on a baking tray.
When firm put into a sealed container and store in the freezer.
This recipe is easy to make and freezes really well, allowing you to decant a few into the fridge as you need them, which will be often unless you apply a bit of discipline as your pet is going to beg you for them.
