  • Dehydrator
  • Small Mixing Bowl
  • Quart size mason jar
  • Oxygen absorber, optional
  • Jar sealer, optional



  • In a mixing bowl add turmeric, freshly cracked peppercorn, and dried parsley.
  • Begin by slicing the liver into even 1/4-inch thick pieces. Next, cut the strips into 2-inch x 3-inch long strips.
  • Thoroughly cover the liver with the turmeric mixture.
  • Lay the coated liver onto the dehydrator trays, making sure the strips are not touching.
  • The liver and turmeric dog treats will take between 10 to 12 hours to dry. Refer to the dehydrator's manual for the correct drying temperature.


At the 10 hour mark begin checking for a finished product. Dried liver will have the same consistency of jerky and is shelf stable.
