How to Make Dehydrator Pumpkin Leather for Dog Treats
Here are the steps for making pumpkin leather for dogs. It's so easy to make pumpkin leather that a recipe isn't necessary.
You simply combine the ingredients in a bowl or food processor, spread them out on a dehydrator pan, and let them slowly dry in a dehydrator.
You should spread mixture over the tray of the dehydrator. Make sure it's evenly distributed.
You don't want one area to be thicker than the other, as it will take longer to dry. The thickness should be between ⅛ and ¼ inch.
You don’t want to see any gaps in the mixture. You also don’t want lumps.
