I like making small batches of hummingbird food so I stay in the habit of cleaning the feeder regularly...but this recipe easily doubles or triples and the extra can be stored in the refrigerator.
- Add the sugar to a measuring cup.
- Add enough boiling water to come up to the 1/2 cup mark. Stir well until the sugar is completely dissolved.
- Add ice cubes to raise the level of the water to 3/4 cup. Stir until the ice is melted and the hummingbird food is at the proper temperature to serve immediately!
