#306984 - 06/06/07 12:12 AM 2 Thumbs Up - Vegetable Relish
Anonymous
Unregistered


I give 2 thumb thumb for who ever created the "Vegetable Relish" - my two boys hate their vegetables (minus corn), but last night I made the relish and they cleared the plate.... w00t w00t.

Here are PICS from the mishap I had while making the Relish....
it was so funny I just had to share - see what happens when you leave the cover off and forget to remove your mixing spoon.

ewww but funny (I've done the same thing!) Jackandsally (Nancy) posted the veggie and fruit relish recipes on the midwestgliderweb. I'm not sure if she came up with them or if she got them elsewhere.

VEGETABLE RELISH:

1 - 32 ounce bag of mixed vegetables, defrosted (green beans, sweetcorn, carrots and peas)

4 - fluid ounces of white grape juice

4 - table spoons of honey

Put half of everything into blender and blend until consistency of relish,
do same with other half and mix together.
Freeze in ice cube trays and give 1 cube per glider.

Hi,
I came up with a veggie relish & a fruit smoothie recipe about 6 years ago and that's the only way I could get my gliders to eat all their vegetables and they love their fruit smoothie... That's so funny because you did exactly what I did when I first started making up the veggie relish..... roflmao I was in a hurry to add the juice and honey and get everything mixed up to see if the babies like it or not, I forgot to put the lid on and relish went everywhere.....hehehe.... I don't know if you are making the same recipe that I created. But I know mine love their veggie's now and they eat all of them...... thumb

Anita heart

That's my recipe.....hehehe....

KEWL!! - it is good to meet the maker of the Relish.... and Thanks a Million. heart glider heart


I altered mine just a little bit.... for I forgot to buy Grape Juice
(and) with all the talk about grapes not being good for our little one I was weary about using it.


My Version of VEGETABLE RELISH:

1 - 32 oz mixed vegetables, defrosted (1 cup corn, 2 cup Peas, 1 cup cooked carrots)

1 - 4 oz Gerber Fruit Juice w/ Yogurt.
(w/ added Apple Juice 1/4 cup) - to help w/ thickness

4 - TBSP Honey


* * * * * * * * * * * * * *

I used the vegetables I listed above for I had already purchased 32 oz bags of each of them individually for feeding to my two SG on vegetable nights, but I think I will get the bag of mixed vegetables next time - when my supply runs out.

* * * * * * * * * * * * * *

Would YOU be so kind as to share your Fruit SMoothie.... I would love to try it out on my SG. glider glider

That sounds good. I am glad you & your babies like it. You can also change it up by adding different kinds of juices: Like CranCherry, CranGrape, baby food mixed fruit or banana with yogurt juice. plus more... I even changed out and did less honey so that the babies weren't getting to much honey will the BML and the veggie relish mix together.....The white grape juice is ok to use . Like I said I have been doing this recipe for around 6 years and haven't had any problems... With God on mine & my babies sides, everyone of my joey and adult gliders are and have been healthy. But I know everyone wants to be cautious. That's fine..... (oh and you can change up the mixed veggie too, just be careful on getting the mixed veggie's with lima beans in them.)

Hi Rhapsody,
It's very nice to meet you too. Yes I do have 50 + gliders, which are all my babies and work a full time job, that's another reason I came up with the veggie relish recipe because you can make it up and put it in the ice cube trays like the BML recipe. A simple and easy fix for everynight feeding for multiple gliders. Thank you signing my guestbook and posting a link to my site on your personal SG website. Sometime you'll have to try out my fruit smoothie recipes.

Anita heart

Here is the Fruit Smoothie recipe

Fruit Smoothie:
5-6 pound bag of mixed fruit,
4 oz baby white grapefruit juice(or almost any other juices)
2-4 tablespoons of honey,
1/2 cup of Dannon French Vanilla Yogurt

Just defrost your bag of fruit & drain the juice, if they are frozen and then place in blender & blend until smooth. Pour into ice cube trays and then serve 1/2 cube to 1 cube per night per a single to a pair of gliders.

Let me know how your babies like it.

Anita heart

(now remember I am serving over 50 gliders with this recipe)

Anita,
I've always wondered who came up with these recipes and now I know! Thank you so much for sharing them with us. I have been using them for a couple of years now and my gliders LOVE them!!! Especially the fruit smoothie heart

Question? Does it bother the gliders not to have stuff to pick up to eat? If they are eating the fruit smoothie and veggie relish plus a mix like BML - does it hurt their teeth only having soft food? Or do you alternate? Thinking of trying these because they only want their staple food plus corn. dunno

Meltmdl, If you mix your fruit/veggie on the "grind" it will not make it into puree...

Anitia..........Thanks so much for being the inventor of these two wonderful treats.....I always wondered who was behind it too heart

Since the fruit has different ingredients than are used by the bml diet can you still do that and not throw anything off..also the veggie relish is it ok for bml users adding the extra honey and juice???

For vegetable relish, do you give them a cube, then fruit?? confused I don't get it. Or do you feed them that one night, then fruit the next??

I would like to know about the ratios with the BML, too.

Mine are SO darn picky! They will eat the BML (I use Judie's) and they will eat peas and corn. That's it! They don't really like any fruit. They don't eat greenbeans or carrots. They will eat spinach, but I don't want to give them that every night!

So - will this fruit and veggie smoothie thing throw off the ratios for BML. Should I mix the BML differently to make up for it? Where's Bourbon when you need her!!??

val i use the bml diet and i use the smoothie and am doing the relish tonight but from what i gather it dosent throw any thing off because you are not using that much honey and you can put friut juice in the water to get them th drink it. with doing the smoothie and relish i just dont use honey for klickey treats

After you make up the Vegetable Relish you place it in the ice trays just like you do the BML and then freeze them..... 1 cube per 2 SG (2 tbsp per cube).

And YES, it is vegetable cube one night and then fruits the next night, but not on the same night.

Well, in the wild I would say most of their food is soft, minus the cricket, worms and other bugs they eat.... and it you do the vegetable relish right they will have the skins to pick thru and drop.

I personally only use the vegetable relish, for like your SG mine too would only eat the corn - I feed all fruits chopped up, but I will try the fruit smoothies from time to time (more as a treat).

.... hope this INFO helped.

I have to feed mine either or - but not both - other wise they NEVER touch their vegetables..... if I was to feed both the relish the fruit on the same night they would never eat their BML.

But YOU are right this what is says about feeding the BML Diet

The rule of thumb per glider:

1 TBSP BML
1 TBSP Fruit
1 TBSP Vegetaables
Insects (feed in the morning)


IF they DON'T eat it all just back off on every thing... offer only half of the recommended amounts and only a few pieces of veggies - - - If they are eating 3/4 of a tablespoon each then they are doing good.

Wow! These look great. My babies are usually pretty good about eating their veggies but these seem like a nice variation for a little change.

Also, should you set the cubes out and let them "soften" a little before serving? I have always wondered if they mind having cold food.

One last question...what bag of mixed of fruits do you use for the smoothie, and if you are feeding four what size adjustment should be made?

Thanks for all the help!!!

(1) I place the ice cube in their feeding tray in the cage and it will defrost quickly... they will even nibble at it a little bit when it is still frozen.

(2) As far as the amount to use on the fruit smoothie - I would say that you will have to do some math to figure this one out - for as you can see the creator of this mix feed "50 Gliders" - Eeeek! shock

I am going to base my Fruit Smoothie amount off on my Vegetable Relish amount.

This is the recipe I am going to try:

Fruit Smoothie:

1 - 32 oz bag of mixed fruit,
1 - 4 oz Gerber Fruit Juice w/ Yogurt
2 - TBSP of Honey
1/4 cup of Dannon French Vanilla Yogurt

.... I will perfect it as I need while making it - for thickness.

Thanks Rhapsody,
That is correct on the measurements to the fruit smoothie and the veggie relish. they follow the same recipe as the smaller batch of veggie relish.... No, these 2 recipes do not throw off the BML balance. It has worked for me for years and my gliders are all healthy and they eat all their BML, fruit smoothie's & veggie relish every night...

Thank you guy's. I am glad to see some of you have already tried these recipes and they are working for you.

Now let's see how many more of you and your gliders like these recipes. It will be great to hear if it's working out for other people too.
