Jim's Apple Farm is famous for it's largest selection of candy in Minnesota, homemade pies, pastries, caramel apples, nut rolls, ten foot long shelf of local fruit preserves, over four cooler cases holding dozens and dozens of small-brand sodas, and one whole case dedicated solely to root beer. Yep, they have the world's largest section of pop (aka soda). Not to mention the ceiling is lined with puzzles, from 50 pieces all the way up to 10,000 piece puzzles. Jim's has everything you can't find anywhere.
Like normal we leave with a big bag filled with apples, a pie, 6 different bottles of root beer, 2 caramel apples, a nut roll, and some gourds. Not to mention our 3 pumpkins.
When we arrived home Spencer saw the bag of fresh apples. So, I made him a treat with two of his favorite foods, apples and peanut butter. Since Spencer is a big dog he usually ends up with his own apple. So I simply cored out the middle and put peanut butter in the hole. For smaller dogs simply cut the apple into slices and spread peanut butter on them.
Apples with the skin on are a great source of vitamin C, potassium, and fiber for you dogs. Just make sure you remove all the seeds before giving it to your dog. When we make apple pies Spencer loves eating the pealings from the apples, that way none of it goes to waste.
This is a quick easy snack you can give to your dog anytime of the year. Most households have these two ingredients laying around already.
Happy Fall Everyone,
Brittany (aka Spencer's Mom)
Note: Supervision is occurring the entire time Spencer is eating the apple to make sure he is biting off small pieces. Spence eats his apples with elegance and grace. If you dog takes big bites or doesn't chew much before they swallow, giving them a whole apple is discouraged.
Interesting as we saw that method at the CHEW Tv show. Actually they made a whole recipe with Caramel (well its not for dogs). I Golden LOVE apples but not the skin. Golden ENJOY! Happy Tasty Tuesday. Lots of Golden woofs, SugarReplyDelete
That is too funny! Thanks for stopping by!Delete
What a great idea! Our beagle Kobi loves apples (he went picking with us recently), but the two girls don't care much for any fruits or veggies. This is probably just what I need to entice them to eat them!ReplyDelete

Looks like fun, did you get lots of peanut butter? Crunchy or creamy?ReplyDelete

I want to go to Jim's! What a great place to visit...I'd leave with big bags of stuff I know...That is the cleverest simplest dog treat I've seen in a while...I do have both of those ingredients so Gizmo will get to try this very soonReplyDelete
You definitely need to take a road trip and swing on by! It is located just south of Jordan off of Hwy 169. Not sure how far that is for you but you will not be disappointed! They are not open year round so I would check their months of operation.Delete
