Beet-Potato Kisses

I made these for Odin and he loves them!!!

Take one can of sliced beets. Put in a pot with the liquid from the can. Add one peeled sweet potato also sliced. bring to a boil and cook until the beets and potato are super soft. Cool.

Take the cooled mixture and put in a blender and blend until smooth.

Take a pastry piping bag, (I use a Wilton #10 bag) and a #3 tip (round hole, about 1/2 cm in diameter). Put the mixture in the piping bag, and pipe out hershy kisses size blobs on parchment paper on a baking sheet. You might want to do smaller blobs for smaller dogs, and larger for larger dogs. You can also use a freezer ziplock bag. Just fill the bag with the mix first, close the bag, and snip off a corner to pipe out the mix.

Turn oven on to 200 degrees, and dry the blobs in the oven overnight. THey should be a "chewy" texture when done. They will shrink a lot, about 50%!!!

Store in the freezer to keep fresh, as there are no preservatives! Use within 2 months (although they probably won't last that long).

Beware, beets will turn their pee pink!!

Hahah. I actually did taste one. Not bad!

I was thinking of a variation using just Pumpkin. Being that pumpkin is good for stomach upset, having canned pumpking handy, what do you do with the unused open bits? Why not make pumpkin treats? Just add a little cinnamon, and do the same thing??

Maybe I'll try that today.
