UK Version of Satin Balls

Hi all,
Well I found the famous Satin Ball recipe but only the US version. I didn't really know what some of the ingredients were and as in UK we are on the metric system had to do some working out.

Not claiming this to be my recipe just that I converted a few weights and worked out what the ingredients were.
I worked out for the full big version and the half.
I managed to get all the ingredients from Sainsburys except for the Wheat Germ which I got from Holland an Barratts. The Total Cereal is not available here but I substituted with plain Cheerios as they seemed the most similar from what I researched.
I also hard boiled the eggs and blended them whole, shell too!
Oh and blend the cereal before adding to everything else as I didn't and it just made it harder to blend the rest.
It took me about 45 mins to prepare and bag and I used a washing up bowel to mix it all.

The half version I made gave me 10 x 1pound bags.

Dog seems to love it so hopefully he will put a bit of weight on?




Ingredients
Makes 10 lots
4.5kg mince beef [the cheapest kind (I used Sainsburys basics)
510 gram . box of cereal [Plain Cheerios]
1.19kg. oatmeal(comes in a bag in Sainsburys)
2 bag of wheat germ (Holland and Barratts 500g bags)
1 1/4 cup oil ( rapeseed oil)
1 1/4 cup of unsulfured molasses (Dark brown sugar)
10 Hard boiled eggs
10 envelopes of unflavored gelatin
pinch of salt
Pinch of Garlic
Mix all ingredients together, much like you would a meatloaf.

Makes 5
2.25kg mince beef [the cheapest kind]
255 gram . box of cereal (Cheerios)
510g. box oatmeal
560 g wheat germ
2 3rds cup oil
2 3rds cup of unsulfured molasses's
5 hard boiled plus shells
5 envelopes of unflavored gelatin
pinch of salt
Pinch garlic

Re: UK Version of Satin Balls

Update on the Satin Balls and Mylo, ( if anyone's interested).

Well I read that you would see results quickly but I didn't think this quick. Only 48 hours ago I could see every rib on Mylo and he looked. Like a stray after 10 days with a bad stomach. I can now only see his last two ribs and he looks great. I gave him 1lb over the 1st day and same yesterday, having read a few other posts I think this may have been a little too much. I can also see that I will now have to manage carefully how much of this stuff he eats as I don't want a fatty!!
He absolutely loves them and to be honest I can't blame him...I think they smell great too, not that I would eat them.... Well after a few beers they may end Up on the BBQ In burger form.

Anyway so far so good so thanks to the post that I got the idea from.

They do work well.

Recheck on dark brown sugar as a replacement for Unsulfured "blackstrap" molasses. I don't think they are interchangeable.

Re: UK Version of Satin Balls

Hi RBD

Ill take a look at that, the dark brown sugar was more of a personal comment really, I bought molasses and to me it looked like dark brown sugar? Hope it's the right stuff? I couldn't find unsulfered written on the packet specifically but it didn't have anything like that in the list on the side of the packet.

It was your recipe I found so hope you don't kind me trying to convert it for us Brits?

I follow your posts and blog quite a lot and will continue to as its so informative. I have just started 2 weeks ago formal field training with a club that specialises in the HPR's...it's brilliant. The boy is 10 months next week. I may be in touch with problems in the future.

Thanks again RBD

;D ;D

What is a HPR? Hunting, Pointing, Retrieving?

Get ready for your world to look different soon. You'll start seeing nature through your dog's eyes. What a great world it is.

Re: UK Version of Satin Balls

Ginger,

Well done for converting or 'deciphering' the SATIN BALL CODE.....

Might give it a go now, the Cheerio's made me laugh ;D ;D.

Mylo must be tearing round the house now on sugar 'Overload' ;D ;D

Where are you in the UK?? Would love to hear more about your HPR lessons/club.

Re: UK Version of Satin Balls

Hello Hobbsy
Well the Cheerios made me wonder but I saw that as a suggestion in my hours of research and looked at the box and seemed to me it had loads of vitamins like that Total cereal in the original but I agree prob loads of sugar too, as for running about.....you know the score! Do they do anything but? Saying that he's been asleep next to me for last two hours and the lazy bugger will push at least 8 hrs straight tonight.

I live in Stourbridge West midlands and travel to just by Birmingham airport off the M42 for the training on a Thursday evening.

Re: UK Version of Satin Balls

GingerN,

We're in Cardiff and there are no HPR clubs or trainers in our direct area!!
Nearest is Cheltnam/ Gloucester way, bit far for us but would love to do it and get involved!
Are you hoping to hunt/shoot with Mylo in the future? Is he showing any early natural ability???
Where did Mylo come from?
