SALMON PET TREATS
I decided to make treats for my pets since one of them has some food allergies. My treats are made with leftover salmon (the skin & bones that we don't eat) that I freeze until I have enough to make a batch. I also use spelt flour instead of wheat flour.
- 1 cup of leftover salmon
- 1 cup chicken stock
- 1 tbsp chicken fat
- 1/2 tsp cinnamon
- 1/4 tsp ginger
- 1/4 tsp turmeric
- 1 1/2 cups spelt flour

In a large bowl combine the egg (including the shell), chicken stock and salmon with a hand blender until the egg shell is ground into very small pieces. (The egg shell provides calcium for your pet.)
Note: I keep the drippings when I roast chickens. When the drippings are cooled down, separate the fat and keep it in one container and the stock in another container. Keep them in the freezer if you don't need them right away.
Add the following ingredients: Chicken fat, cinnamon, parsley, ginger & turmeric. Blend with hand blender
Gradually add 1 1/2 cups of spelt flour using a wooden spoon until the mixture forms a soft dough.
Lightly flour the dough and roll it out on a piece of parchment paper large enough to cover an 11x14 cookie sheet.
Using a pizza cutter or knife, cut the dough into tiny squares. Bake in the centre of the oven for 20 minutes at 325 degrees for chewy treats. If you want them hard and crunchy, leave in the oven for an additional 10 minutes.
Store one week's supply of the cookies in the refridgerator. Freeze the remainder and thaw as needed.
