Sweet Potato Jerky

From Stanford Inn by the Sea in Mendocino, California

Sunset Magazine recently named the Stanford Inn by the Sea as “the Most Pet-Friendly Vacation”. They make traveling with your pet easy and fun. Visit them the Inn this Spring as they celebrate pets and their owners! And, make their jerky recipe for a healthy and safe treat for your dog.


Take a large garnet yam sweet potato, peel, slice lengthwise into 1/4" slabs. Steam slabs until tender. You can also put into simmering water. Place slabs on a rack or cookie sheet. Use a silicone pad or lightly spray the cookie sheet to prevent sticking. Slowly dry - dehydrate - potato slices in a very low oven no higher than about 135 F. A pilot in an old oven will often produce about the right amount of heat. Better yet, use a food dehydrator.
