Homemade Hummingbird Nectar Recipe
Last year my sister Liz gave me a humming bird feeder along with this recipe for homemade Hummingbird Nectar. She has a heart of gold and beautiful handwriting too :)
<3 love handwritten recipes <3
Hummingbird Nectar Recipe
4 cups water (distilled or boiled)
1 cup sugar
optional: red food coloring
If using tap water, boil, dissolve sugar and allow to cool.
This makes more than my feeder will hold, so I save the rest in a quart mason jar in the refrigerator and refill the feeder when the food becomes cloudy.
Humming bird food will turn cloudy if the feeder is located in direct sun, if the feeder is not clean or if you do not boil your water. If your hummingbird food is turning cloudy, replace it.
