1 Part Sugar
4 Parts Water
Boil 1-2 Minutes
Cool & Store In Refrigerator for up to 3 weeks

Directions:
Directions:
Never use honey or artificial sweeteners! Honey ferments easily, and can cause sores in a hummers mouth. Artificial sweeteners have no food value. DO NOT use red food coloring in your solution, as this could be harmful to your hummers. No testing has been done on the effects dye has on birds. Most feeders have red on them and that should be enough.
I have found that this is the best recipe for making your own nectar--I feel the birds prefer it over the various instant mixes.
