Good evening everyone, on another thread of mine I mentioned that I was going to start making chop. I got a small batch done just as a trial run and I would love some feedback! This is my first time making it and finding the right ingredients had me running around the grocery isle for a while, I'm always paranoid about what is safe. What I have sitting in the freezer is this: -broccoli -carrots -cauliflower -uncooked quinoa -jalapeno pepper -kale I bought everything prerinsed/prewashed. I didn't do any frozen because Idk if it is bad to unfreeze them, mix it, then freeze it again. I've heard quinoa is okay uncooked and he seems to like it. Now, a couple of questions: 1.) Is this a good beginner's recipe? 2.) If birds can't taste the spice of the pepper, should I just leave it out? 3.) What else can I add that doesn't need to be cooked? I like just chopping it and tossing it in the freezer, cooking scares me lol 4.) What do beans, grains, and legumes provide for birds? I can't seem to figure it out, is there a good alternative to any of these? I looked at a few recipes and this one was a good guideline for me, but it seemed incomplete from everything else I've read.
