Just made some baby food for the crabs. :D Spinach, cucumber, carrots, blueberries, freeze-dried shrimp and a drop of honey. They're both walking away from it. :lol:

Basil leaves from the safe list, broccoli leaves, and bell peppers.

Made a crabby omelet last night (too much time on my hands, lol):

Quail eggs, dried mixed insect powder, dried hotpepper powder, spinach, and chard.

Nobody touched it, as far as I can tell, and it smells terrible now. :roll:

Tonight it's carrots, mushrooms, green beans and shrimp. Spirulina powder in a clam shell and some forage: calendula buds, clover, rose buds and kelp powder. I'm finding I like to hit all the major parts of my crabs' diet.

Here's one of my favorite recipes that my crabs seem to love.
Preheat your oven to 170 degrees F
Take a cup of cut up fresh fruit (can be a single kind or a mix) and put on a pan covered in wax paper but make sure the fruit isn't touching
Put in oven for 2 and a half hours or until the fruit is dry.
Take the dried fruit and put in a blender with a tablespoon of honey until the fruit is in tiny pieces and the honey is well mixed in.
Allow crabs to enjoy :crabbigsmile:
This should give you about a weeks worth of food depending on how many crabs you have.
Please note that the coloring will be different depending on what fruit you use. :banana:

I'm thinking about making my own dehydrated fruit and vegetables by putting them in my oven for a couple of hours.

Go for it! Tips: leave the door cracked open, check up often. I like to cut mine into teeny bits, as this is a bit faster, but you gots to check on them more the smaller they are. :)
