Gel Food

Postby susankat » 2007-09-01 05:38

Thought I would post a recipe of one of the gel foods I make for my fish. Some of you may be interested in making for yourselves. My fish really love the gel foods and I have 4 different recipes.


Gel Food Recipe

Makes about 3 cups of gel food.

Ingredients:

Ingredients
4 Packs Gelatine
3 Cups Water (bottled, filtered/dechlorinated)
0.5 Cup Salmon
1/2 tsp Flaxseed Oil
3 Tbsp Paprika
0.5 Cup Mustard Greens
1 Cup Broccoli
0.5 Cup Green Beans
1/2 cup fresh kale blanched (reserve water for making gel)
1 Tab multivitamin (I used OneSource, Multivitamin-Multimineral Adult High Potency Formula)
1 Tab Lactobacillus Acidophilus optional**

Place the Acidophilus tab and the multivitamin in 2 T water to soak.

Add 1 cup water to blender and add vegetables, oil, salmon and Acidophilus/Vitamin mixture. Blend until ingredients are chopped very finely.
For sinking food:
Pour mixture into a bowl.
Bring remaining water to a boil and dissolve gelatine. Stir until well mixed.
Add dissolved gelatine slowly to blended ingredients and stir well.
Pour into flat shallow container(s) to make a depth of 1/4".
tap container gently to remove any trapped air bubbles.

For floating food:
Bring remaining water to a boil and dissolve gelatine. Stir until well mixed.
Pour gelatine mixture into blender and blend until well mixed.
Pour into flat shallow container(s) to make a depth of 1/4".

Refrigerate until set.

Cut into squares. I leave out a week's worth of gel in a plastic zipper bag and store in the refrigerator. The rest I freeze between layers of plastic wrap. When frozen, I store in the freezer in ziplock bags (each holding about a week of food).

Sorry about waiting so long to answer this, but the paprika is high in vitamin C and will also help with colors.
