Directions

Pig ears are often available at Asian, Mexican, or local butcher markets. Clean them under running tap water, scrubbing well. A little soap wouldn't hurt, but rinse well.

Beware! Ears and skin is very hard to cut up! Using a pair of sharp, sturdy kitchen scissors, or sharp butcher knife, cut the ears into the size you need. As an example: I have a Lab and I cut in half, or for a Jack Russell I cut in 4. It depends on the dog! These are not good for puppies under 8 weeks. They are good for teething pups after 8 weeks!

Dip or brush each piece of ear with oil, then place them on a baking sheet. As a special treat, you can use peanut oil or coconut oil. When all ear pieces are dipped or brushed, sprinkle with bouillon powder.

Optional a "little" bit of salt over the sheet's contents. Be careful not to over salt them!

Bake the pieces in the oven at a low 250 degrees F. for five or six hours. Drain well on paper towels. They will be greasy!

Feed in moderation. Your babies will love you for this!
