Garlic Treats
Lamb Jerky
Liver Brownies
Liver Chewies
Microwave Treat
Peanut Brindle
Tasty Tidbits

Garlic Treats
1/2 c Whole Wheat flour (White also works!)
1 tsp. White Sugar
1/4 tsp. Salt
6 TBS Margarine softened
1 Egg
1/2 c Non-fat dry powdered milk
1/2 c Cool water
1 tsp. garlic powder (not garlic salt)

Mix all dry ingredients-flour, sugar, salt, powdered milk and garlic powder together. Add margarine, egg and water and mix. Knead in enough flour additionally until dough makes a nice ball. Roll to about 1/2 inch thick and cut into desired shapes. (I used pizza cutter, made training tidbits, and larger squares also.) Bake on lightly greased cookie sheet for 30 minutes at 350 degrees F. They literally reek of garlic!

Lamb Jerky
5 pound Lamb Roast
1 quart of water
1/2 cup vinegar
1 cup salt
1 tablespoon pepper
1 - 2 tablespoons garlic (not garlic salt)

Slightly freeze lamb roast so it will be easier to cut into slices to prepare for cooking. Combine all ingredients: water, vinegar, salt, pepper and garlic in a pan and bring to a boil. Slice the slightly frozen lamb roast into 1/4 inch wide strips. Drop slices into boiling mixture and let cook for 5 minutes. Meat will be rubbery. Then drain strips and place strips between layers of paper towels (several on bottom and several on top) Take a rolling pin and roll across paper towels to press out the moisture.

In a 200 degree oven, lay pressed strips directly on oven rack, careful not to let them touch or they'll stick together. Leave oven door ajar slightly to let moisture escape. Cook for about 1 1/2 hours.

Liver Brownies
Whole peeled clove of garlic
1 cup of cornmeal
1 cup of rice flour
1 lb. of calf or beef liver

Put garlic in the food processor. Liquefy. Add liver. Liquefy. Add other ingredients. Thick batter will form. Grease a brownie pan. Pour in batter and level. Bake for 25 minutes at 350 degrees. Cool and cut into squares. Keep refrigerated.

2 1/2 cups Rye flour
1/2 cup Powdered milk
1 Egg, well beaten
1/2 cup Water
1/2 tsp. Salt
1/2 tsp. garlic powder
6 tbs. Shortening or margarine
1 tsp. Brown sugar

Combine all dry ingredients. Add shortening to dry ingredients. Add beaten egg and liver powder (or substitution). Add 1/2 cup cold water or giblet broth and form ball. Roll dough 1/2" thick on oiled sheet and cut with cutter. Bake 25-30 minutes in 350F. oven. Store in refrigerator.
