– 1 cup plain white sugar – 4 cups hot water – Large spoon – Mixing bowl (preferably with a pouring spout/lip) – Funnel (optional) – Hummingbird feeder
Stir the sugar and hot water in your mixing bowl until the sugar is dissolved. (What you end up with is a light simple syrup.)
Let the syrup cool down to lukewarm or room temperature.
As soon as the syrup has cooled, carefully pour it into your hummingbird feeder of choice (using a funnel if needed). Store any unused syrup in a lidded container in the fridge for up to two weeks.
You can make this recipe as often as needed. Just be sure to wash the feeder thoroughly before your next batch.
