Serves: 50-54 one-ounce cubes
Ingredients
  • 1 large Cornish Hen, with giblets, about 6 pounds, finely ground (only use thighs, legs, and breasts because the wings and spine would increase the bone:meat ratio too much.)
  • 3 egg yolks
  • ½ cup wild caught salmon oil
  • 12 B-50 Complex vitamin capsules (NOW Foods brand)
  • 6 vitamin E capsules (NOW Foods)
  • ½ stick unsalted butter, melted
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1 tsp taurine amino acid powder
  • ½ cup water
Instructions
  1. If the Cornish hen and giblets are not already ground, grind the chicken into a large bowl.
  2. In a small bowl, mix together remaining ingredients, combining well.
  3. Using a large metal spoon, stir the vitamin mixture into the chicken and continue stirring until the chicken and vitamin mixture are fully combined.
  4. Then, using a spoon, fill ice cube trays and place in the freezer until hard. I like to use ice cube trays that are divided into one-ounce slots so that I know how much foods my cats are eating.
  5. When the food is frozen, remove from the ice cube trays and place in a freezer proof bag or container and store in the freezer.
  6. Thaw the food cubes in the refrigerator in the food bowl overnight to feed your cats in the morning, and thaw food cubes in the refrigerator during the day to feed your cats in the evening. DO NOT store raw food in the refrigerator longer than 48 hours.
