Its a cauliflower, broccoli, carrot mix + rice + liver and ground turkey. I used to just boil/cook everything separately in 8qt pots.
I assumed that food processing the frozen veggies would speed up the whole process (because you have to basically boil the veggies to mush for the dogs) as well as the liver (It was a pain chopping it up). From there you just add everything the veggies/rice/meat into a huge 24qt stock pot and cook it all in one mega batch.
I figure the whole process can be streamlined into about an hour (before I'd have to cook everything separately then mix it up - it was really cumbersome). I let the cleaning lady bag it up into 1 cup portions and freeze it. One batch in the 24qt pot makes 80+ one cup servings (about a month and half of food for a dog) for about $35.
i think I'm going to be one of the people that makes my own baby food too - its basically the same process.
