Hummingbird Food Recipe Make Your Own Nectar
To make your hummingbird food recipe solution, follow these instructions without deviation from ingredients. When creating a sugar solution for your feeder, the best ratio is 1 part white, granulated sugar to 4 parts water, since this closely approximates the concentrations found in the nectar of wildflowers they prefer.
To make a little over 1 cup of hummingbird nectar recipe solution (normally enough to fill a standard feeder) follow the below directions:
- Make sure your feeder is cleaned thoroughly before adding new solution.
- Boil 1 cup of water.
- Stir 1/4 cup of white granulated sugar into the 1 cup of heated water.
- Stir until sugar dissolves.
- Cool, fill your hummingbird feeder and serve!
Any leftover nectar can be stored in the refrigerator for 2 weeks.
