I always keep homemade treats in the freezer just in case. If nothing else you put a lot of time and money into making it so why chance it going bad on you?

I mixed equal amounts of cooked sweet potato and raw ground turkey to make leather last year. Dogs loved it of course. Rolled the icky stuff between wax paper sheets to pie crust thickness [which made a very thin leather], peeled off the top sheet, in dehydrator until top was leathery, peeled off bottom, dry side down and finished drying. Stayed a pretty orange color and got lots of treats out of it since it was so thin. It wasn't too brittle, I wondered about that since there isn't any gluten in it. The fastest easiest treats are simply baking meat or organ and cutting into bits. Liver is great this way. I would experiment with different combinations of vegetables and ground meat. I am quite certain the only problem would be if the treat is hard to handle. Your dog will love anything you come up with. Try baking meat mixed with egg and potato for meatballs.

I make jerky out of chicken, sweet potato and apples. Just slice it thin and put it in a dehydrator or an oven at 180*. I use the oven. Remember to grease the pan lightly(I use olive oil) and bake 1 hour or two on one side and flip then cook until done.
