I just tried making a batch from rawhide dog bone scrapes... and it isnít at all sticky.. I have stuff that I bought a while ago and it works and itís real sticky... the stuff I made is a creamy color itís been cooking for 6 hours at 170 ... it gells but itís not sticky at all there was one point when it went over 170  could that have been the problem ?
people say "back in the real world" as in referring to city's and town "civilized" places.  I am the opposite, I find that is a fake world of fake people (mostly) the real world is in the mountains and forest. The wild is thought of as a pristine place. But many people never see the suffering.

Is it about the consistency of syrup? I'm thinking it's too thin and you need to cook it a little longer.

It should be like light syrup when it's warm. All I've ever used is dog chew rawhide.

Another question... how do you rehydrate it?

Add water and wait ;D Usually overnight is how I do it. Then I heat it on one of those little coffee mug warmers. Once I've used what I need I freeze the left over. The last couple of times I used it I microwaved it to warm it up. There may be room to screw up here but I watched it carefully so it didn't boil.
