Gel Food Recipe

Measurements are approximations. Yes I'm one of those cooks ;)

1/4 cup frozen spinach
1/4 cup green beans
1/8 cup fresh finely shredded fresh carrots
1/2 cup frozen peas
1 to 2 packets of original unflavored gelatin (brand is "Knox" found in grocery store). *The gelatine part is tricky. you may need 2 packets. I eye ball everything just like I cook. You need the end result so that when it's all said and done the gel food is firm. If it's too mushy it will simply dissolve in the water when you try to feed your fish. As for the veggies, feel free to experiment with different kinds. Keep peas in the mix though. They're good for digestion sake.

Heat in pan w/ approx 1/2 c chlorine free water (let tap water sit out over night at least 24hrs before using)

Just long enough that the carrots have softened. The frozen food is ready quickly. All you're doing is thawing it.

Place in blender and liquify the veggies. You want the consistency of say runny ketchup. *may need to add a bit more water to the blender if it seems too thick.

Dissolve 2 packets of unflavored gelatin in half a cup of warm water, microwave till clear, and stir into the veggie mix.

You can also add (dried, frozen, the real live thing) krill, brine shrimp, earth worms, canned tuna, etc and make a meat version to the veggies version. You'll need to turn the dried food into a powder before adding it to the blended veggies. As for the canned tuna, just drain, add and blend once more in the blender w/ the veggies.

I make both and just label the contatiners in the freezer. I think my fish eat better than I do :)

Pour the blended mix in small freezable containers.
Place in freezer.
Place in refrigerator to thaw (thaws quickly) when you're ready to feed your fish.
Once thawed will last 4 days for veggie version. 2 to (3 tops) days for meat.
One batch makes quite a bit of food. Well for goldfish any way. Most of you have koi and very large koi at that so you'll go through this much faster than I do.

***This should not replace food you are currently feeding your fish but should serve as a supplement to vary their diet. A fun treat high in vitamins A and C.***

In short, I keep the food frozen until I'm ready to feed them. Thaws quickly and they like this fun healthy treat. All and all I've found the firmer the mixer the better. More food is eaten and less food dissolves into the water.

Does anyone else make gel food and have recipes to share?
