Hummingbird Nectar Recipe

Hummingbirds flock around a backyard nectar feeder.

For 1 quart:
4 cups water
1 cup sugar

1. Fill a 1 quart mason jar with 1 cup water.
2. "Nuke" in microwave for 3 minutes.
3. Carefully remove to sink–it will be very hot!
4. Pour 1 cup sugar into jar and stir until dissolved.
5. Fill jar with cool water.
6. Fill clean feeder(s) with nectar.
7. Cover jar with lid and refrigerate.

P.S. Hummers will take cold nectar, but it's always a good idea to warm the nectar to room temperature before refilling the feeder.
