If you want to make hummingbird food for the hummingbirds visiting your backyard feeders then this simple homemade recipe is exactly what you need.
Hummingbird Food Ingredients
- 1 - Cup Water
- 1/4 - Cup Sugar
Bring the 1 cup of water to a boil. Add the sugar to the water. Using a spoon, stir the sugar until it is completely dissolved into the water. Let the mixture cool completely. Once the mixture is cool, you can fill your hummingbird feeder with it. Remember to clean your hummingbird feeder at least once a week. To speed up the process, you may boil the water in your microwave. Although at one time it was common practice, do not add any food coloring to your hummingbird food mixture. You can make hummingbird food and store it for up to a week in your refrigerator.
