So, this is my dog safe version of Hanukkah gelt.
You make some wonderful stock. You slice a bunch of cleaned carrots. You poach the carrots in the stock. About 10 minutes at simmer. We like them fork tender, not mushy. You serve them to your grateful dog who now has his/her own "GELT".
Chocolate... ick, I can live without the poison. but I do love a tradition!
