Dried Cheese This easy recipe is a great way to create training treats, or just something extra special for your pup. 1. To begin, slice a firm cheese like Cheddar or Monterey Jack into 1/4″ or smaller cubes. 2. Spread cheese in a single layer on paper towels on cookie sheets or trays and place in a room temperature, dry, protected location where the dogs cannot get it. Run a fan on the cheese for 24-72 hours. The exact amount of time depends on the cheese, the size of the pieces and the ambient humidity. Stir the pieces daily so all sides dry evenly. 3. The cheese is done when it turns a darker color and has a hard texture. The oil in the cheese will come to the surface. Roll the cubes in paper towel to rid them of excess oil. The cubes can be combined with kibble or other dry food which absorbs the oil and makes the food more appealing to the dog. 3. The cheese will keep for up to a month at room temperature, depending on ambient humidity, for six months in the refrigerator or a year in the freezer Adapted recipe viaWe wanted to share this easy, nutritional and pet-friendly recipe for you to try with your favorite furry companion!
