Let's eat out of the e-mail bag today. Here's one from a vendor at the Proctor farmers market, responding to my challenge for food vendors to incorporate local ingredients into the foods they make and sell at farmers markets:
So I tried to find organic ingredients at the Market, that I could use in my dog treats. The only thing I could find is organic goat cheese, so I tried using it in my dog treats. I normally use cheddar cheese, or cottage cheese.
The organic dog treats are expensive to make ... they are also soft baked, which is good for senior dogs. I do add a natural preservative, so they have a little better shelf life, for something fresh baked.
Thank you, Cynthia Powell, (Dogtreatbakery.org)
