I just got myself 4 Hummingbird feeders to place around our yard. Hummers are everywhere out here where I live in Santa Fe. When I read the ingredients in commercially made Hummingbird food, it made me shudder. So I Googled and found this recipe which is way cheaper and so much better. Seriously, if I avoid eating packaged food containing junk, why would I want to feed horrible chemicals to these gorgeous little creatures!!!
1 part organic sugar
4 parts water
Mix sugar and pure water. Bring to boil. Cool. Fill into clean feeder/s. Store extra in fridge for 1 week. Clean feeder once a week. Twice a week in hot weather.
Enjoy the hummers!!!
No need for Red food coloring.
Honey can be damaging to Hummers.
