The beans are pretty soft after I'm all done. I've upped the cooking time a bit, too.

The Amazons get 2 tbsp. in the morning and 2 tbsp. in the evening, and the big Macs get double that. I warm it up for them, and they love it.

THANK YOU for the link!!!

Re: Cook, portion + freeze (My recipe)

I'm confused. You cook everything and then rinse it? Is their any flavor or nutrition left? Why all the rinsing? Clearly I'm missing something here either in my knowledge base or my cooking skills!! Thank you.

Yes, Linda, I rinse it because the beans leave quite a mess once they are cooked. AND I use bottled water for the final rinse because Jersey water is so very, very nasty.

Re: Cook, portion + freeze (My recipe)

Instead of boiling it, you could buy a cheap rice pressure cooker. Go to any Asian store like Kim's Home Center. It's the BEST for Korean appliances, blankets...Korean anything! Excluding food, but everything is there. I eat rice on the daily as I'm Korean. RICE FOR THE WORLD. Anyway, cook your rice and beans in there. The rice will last forever! It won't be as soft as the first time you cook it, but heck, it still tastes good to me!

There's also a bean called the red bean. I know that we eat it as a dessert and it can actually be very sweet! (Beans as a dessert, WUT?!) I don't know if it has the same properties as other beans, but I'd exercise caution. But I think that if you cooked and washed everything properly, just the boiling and pressure would make the toxins go away, no?

Re: Cook, portion + freeze (My recipe)

I actually have a rice cooker. However, the amount of food I make won't all fit in that cooker, so I resort to one of my biggest pots instead.

I must've underestimated the amount of food you make... And I seemed super hyper in that post, sorry about that.

Re: Cook, portion + freeze (My recipe)

I generally make chop twice a month, we currently have 6 littles (the biggest being a senegal, the smallest 2 parrotlets)

I use corn, peas, carrots, beets, radish, red/yellow peppers, cauliflower, broccoli, water cress, kale, turnip greens, jalapeno and occassionally habanero.
there is also butternut squash (I buy frozen organic because its a pain fresh), zucchini, sweet potato or whatever veggies that are safe and in season. Michigan leaves alot to be desired in the cold months as far as produce.

I cook quinoa and add this to the finely chopped veggies. I dont give my birds pasta or rice, no real reason, just never have.

I also sprout seeds for them and my senegal loves garbanzo beans, so I toss those in as well. I buy everything I can organic. The only food I cook is the quinoa and sweet potato.
Its all thoroughly mixed!
Its put into ice trays and frozen, then popped out and put into gallon size bags!

We add fruit every other day and the birds all get a shelled tree nut or two as a forgaing treat. The sennie shells her own LOL

Birds are alot of work!!

Re: Cook, portion + freeze (My recipe)

I freeze tangelos and tangerines, drill and run wire and watch him do battle with, I bought a hundred of these 1-1/2x 2" tuperware containers. Bought several bags of thsi and that. everyday somethin different.. blueberries are his favorite.'

Curious.


no meat? my GWM is a bit of a carnivore. Rotessirie Chicken from Wal mart. London broil cut one more time into long strings. THe knuckle head saute'd his tail feathers in bacon and sausage grease yester morn. Its like said before they notice what we eat , slides down my arm and is fearless of heat. At nine months I guess he is aquiring tastes. I keep alternating with everything. I even warm his water and add a splashof orange juice. Greens, great one day , wont toudh them again till?? What bird doesnt eat a peanut ? Mine doesnt. I, carefull no salt..

He reached 1280g at 3 months ever since clipping his wings bare minimum he is only at 1240 at 9 months. Now he is a very active bird and gets 10 to 13 hours of dark at 80 degrees 40% humidity.. I vant stand to try something different and then watch him not eat anything for 6 hours . I ma a softy I always give in. His water is 105 sometimes hire with always an mmmmmmmm of approval.. Im going to share your recipe with variation. It just that he is too young and I have spoiled him. some days I( cant use the facilities with out pitching a fit. Others , he makes me feel guilty staring at me . why arent you at work?" I am knucklehead, building your aviary.

Re: Cook, portion + freeze (My recipe)

Resurrecting this from the grave but Carl has been going through an ultra picky stage at the moment and this recipe is the first time he's actually sat there and ate rather than picking his food out and just dropping it! Just did the base today, warmed and tomorrow plan on adding some fruit.

Thanks so much!
