Boegie's chop
« on: June 05, 2016, 01:22:25 PM »
I have been making chop by hand for two and a half years now. It's time to make it easier and add more ingredients.

My old method:

Buy buy grater  ;D

This is phase 1. The next phase I am buying a steamer so that I can add rice and ingredients I need to cook.

Please note that I am adding a commercial cooking mix every morning that is very easy to make by just adding hot water.

Photo 1 - Food processor working 100% - already wished I bought a bigger one.
Photo 2 - All ingredients mixed.
Photo 3- Enough for one week to be frozen and some fresh for tomorrow morning.

Hi Walter, I read on Facebook to wash all your veggies with white vinegar. I kills all larwa and insects. It also removes the poison they spray on the veggies.

Yes Charmaine

These are my basic ingredients that I added and with every new chop preparation I am going to add something new and post a pick. As they say, always add something different and new so that it's not boring for the birds.

Carrots
Cabbage
Beetroot
Peppers, green, red, yellow
Green Beans
Cauliflower
Spinach - only one bowl as spinach should not be fed to much

Patricia Sund is my mentor when it comes to feeding.

There are basically 3 types of ingredients:
1. Dry ingredients - photo 1
2. Cooked or steamed ingredients - like rice and pasta and veggies that need steaming. I tried sweet potatoes and pumkin. The eggs are my lunch  ;) - photo 2
3. Raw veggies

Beans are a completely separate mix.
Fruit - do not get added as it do not good in a freezer.

This is the first time in my life I make rice and pasta. Always stayed out of the kitchen and as a bachelor now, ready prepared food  ;D

Photo 1 - steamed rice - took 40 minutes
Photo 2 - steamed sweet potato and pumpkin - took 30 minutes
Photo 3 - steamed pasta - took 20 minutes

Added more dry ingredients.

Photo 2 and 3 - after all been mixed.

Photo 4 - made more this time.

Next time I am going to look for all these fancy ingredients like long grain brown rice, sweet rice, ginger, garlic, etc.

Any suggestions would be highly appreciated.

The commercial mix I add every morning. Just add hot water.

The amount of birds I feed. Enough for me at this stage.
