Pohutukawa honey glazed bacon, homemade dog treats with honey

Dogs love bacon just as much as their masters, so it is no surprise this is a very popular homemade dog treat when they find this in the hand of their owners. This is a fairly simple recipe to make, although it will take some prep time on your part. First, you will need to make the honey glazed bacon, then you can move forward with making the homemade dog treats.

To make the bacon, you will need to warm up some raw honey to drizzle over the bacon strips. We would recommend making a few extra strips, as you are going to be tempted to have a few pieces of this yourself. To thin out the honey, as raw honey is very thick, you can add some hot water to warm it up and thin it out. We are going to use Pohutukawa honey for this recipe because of the slightly salty flavor, which will complement the bacon as well as make the treat even more delicious for your pup.
