Homemade Hummingbird Food

Today we made homemade hummingbird food and I am looking forward to watching the hummingbirds come and enjoy.  It was such an easy thing to make so I thought I would share how.

Homemade Hummingbird Food
4 cups of water
1 cup of sugar
hummingbird food container

Place water into a pot.  Buddy loves measuring things and the water was no exception.

Bring the 4 cups of water to boil.  I did this part and kept Buddy and Sweetpea out of the kitchen.  Once the water is boiling, turn off the heat to keep too much water from boiling out of the pot and messing up the 4 to 1 ratio. 

Pull the pot off the heat and measure 1 cup of sugar into the water.  Stir until the sugar is dissolved.

Cool completely in the refrigerator and pour into the hummingbird feeder.

Hang up and enjoy!
