There actually wasn't any mud where the dogs were running. Or I should say that I didn't see any. Somehow Daisy found a little wet spot in this weird red dirt and just dug herself a hole so that she could get herself wedged down in there real good.She was so covered in every spot of her
I wake up every morning with a list of new things to do or try each day. It really gets exhausting. The grocery store had a lot of bags of organic cranberries at a cheap price so I got a lot of them. I made loads of cranberry nut bread until now I am getting a little sick of it. So I thought I would try a cranberry chutney. Watching the Great British Bake Off so many times made me wonder about the ginger that they seem to use in tons of recipes. I looked it up to see what our equivalent was to the names they kept calling it. It seems that it is a candied or crystallized ginger. In the grocery store it was more money than I wanted to pay for it so I said to myself "why don't I just make it!"
So I got a ginger root, sliced it up, boiled it in a sugar syrup few a long time. And the result was amazing! Totally scrumptious. I never had anything like it. Especially with the syrup.
These are the ingredients. I try to use what I can that is organic. The salmon is wild caught and low sodium-important. I used gluten free flour and coconut flower just to try them. Regular flour or whole wheat or rice would work as well.
I put 2 large eggs + shells, 1 can salmon, 1 can pumpkin in the food processor and mixed until blended. Then added 1 cup of each of the flours (2 cups total-more if too soft) slowly in and continued mixing. I chilled the dough for about an hour. Then rolled out the dough onto a floured surface. Can make a long roll, chill and slice circles off.
Heat the oven to 350 degrees.
They were rolled to around a 1/4 inch thick. But could be various thicknesses. I used lots of flour because the dough stuck to the counter. I have seen recipes that used 3 cups of flour instead of the 2 that I used. I used a cookie cutter to shape them and then placed them on a cookie sheet sprayed with oil. Parchment paper will work well also.
Bake for 15 minutes. I put them back in to dry crispy at 200 degrees for 25 minutes.
And here are a few of them. The recipe makes a lot. I would keep them in the refrigerator.
My doggies went crazy for them.
Simple, quick, and inexpensive especially if you buy good quality dog treats like me.
