Homemade All Natural, High Oleic, High Polyphenol Olive Oil Dog Biscuits

Yield: about 42 larger (3 1/2" dog-bone) biscuits, 60 smaller (round) biscuits.

Ingredients:
1 cup organic rolled oats
1 tablespoon organic mint, finely chopped
½ cup nonfat dry milk
½ teaspoon sea salt
2 large organic eggs
1 cup organic, high-oleic, high polyphenol olive oil peanut butter, made with Organic Leccino, Frantoio or Picual - (either chunky or smooth)
½ cup + 1 tablespoon cold water, or enough to make the dough come together

Directions:
Make the olive oil peanut butter using the recipe link above.
Preheat the oven to 300°F.
Lightly grease a couple of baking sheets, or line them with parchment.
Mix together the rice flour, oats, mint, dried milk, and sea salt. Add the eggs and peanut butter, stirring to combine; the mixture will be crumbly. Add enough water to bring the dough together.
To make biscuits using a dog-bone cutter, roll the dough about ¼" thick and cut with a 3½" cutter (or the size of your choice).
Gather and re-roll the scraps, and continue to cut biscuits until you've used all the dough.

To make dog cookies, drop the dough in walnut-sized balls onto the prepared baking sheets. Flatten them to about 1/4". Bake the biscuits for about 40 to 60 minutes, baking the smaller cookies for a shorter amount of time. When finished, the biscuits will be dark golden brown, and will be dry and crisp all the way through. Remove the biscuits from the oven, and cool right on the pans.

Natrual High-Oleic, Extra Virgin Olive Oil Peanut Butter

Makes 1 ½ cups natural peanut butter

Peanut butter is a pantry staple for most folks. If you have kids, chances are you have a few jars stashed in the cupboard. What many people don't know is that the average jar of name brand peanut butter contains loads of dangerous hydrogenated fats, sodium and sugar.

The following recipe is developed using fresh, high-oleic extra virgin olive. When the right olive oil is used for this recipe, its' flavour takes a back seat to the rich flavour of roasted peanuts. You will be hard pressed to detect it and your heart will thank you for the change.

Ingredients:
2 Cups roasted, unsalted peanuts
½ tsp. salt (optional)
1 Tbs. granulated sugar (optional)
¼ cup High Oleic, High Polyphenol Organic Picual, Frantoio or Leccino Extra Virgin Olive Oils

Directions:
Place the peanuts in the jar of your blender. Add the salt and sugar if using. Pour the olive oil over the peanuts and wait 30 seconds until the oil flows to the bottom of the jar. Turn the blender on high. Process until the desired level of creaminess or up to two minutes for super creamy peanut butter. It may be necessary to turn off the blender a few times and scrape down the sides of the blender jar. Store tightly covered in the refrigerator for up to 6 weeks.

Fresh Cherve Drizzled with Aged White Peach Balsamic Condimento Reduction

This application is easy, elegant and delicious. Use only the finest quality, fresh goat cheese here. The golden peach condimento reduction compliments the creamy, slightly salty, tangy goat cheese perfectly. It adds a mellow sweetness, the complex flavor of ripe peach and naturally caramelized dried fruit notes.

Ingredients:
2 cups aged white peach balsamic condimento
8 oz. fresh cherve

Directions:
In a 2 quart sauce pan over very low heat, gently simmer the condimento and reduce by half, approximately one cup. The condiment should never be allowed to boil or the natural sugar will burn and become bitter. The pot should be watched carefully. The process can take as long as 30 minutes but the results will be worth the effort. The finished reduction should be thick and light amber in color. Once smell slightly of caramel and complex fruit. Allow to cook completely and then transfer to a jar. Once allowed to sit, and cool the flavour will become more complex.
