While digging around a cupboard in my China Hutch I came across an old hummingbird feeder, still in the box.  We have always put out at least one feeder every year out humming birds, and just had to toss an old plastic one that cracked.  Of course I was out of the powder nectar that we buy, when I saw a little slip of paper inside that gave instructions for making the nectar!  This is super quick and easy to make.  They hardest part of the process for me was getting a good picture of the darn hummingbirds.

Food dye (optional)

Bring 4 parts water and 1 part sugar to boil.  Let cool completely and add to hummingbird feeders.  I have greedy hummingbirds, so the first batch I made of 2 cups water and 1/4 cup sugar did not last long.  I did a second batch of 4 cups water and 1 cup sugar, and stored the extra nectar in a glass jar for a few days until it was time to refill the feeders.  I did add a food dye to the first batch just because I could, but that is optional, and the hummingbirds are just as greedy with the second batch that does not have any color.
