BIRDSEED/MILLET STERILIZATION?? HELP!
    #581789 - 03/18/02 12:13 AM (15 years, 2 months ago)

Was wondering if there is any way i can sterilze birdseed/millet (any kind) with a microwave, or boiling it as if it was from the PF Tek. Also ive read from another post that i can crush up birdseed, and then i would be able to boil it, but i want whole grain birdseed, so can i use the microwave or stove, if so, please reply with details on the procedure, any help is most apprecaited.
Thank you in advance.
-Victor

Sorry, been away for spring break:). The best way is to use a pressure cooker. But if you donto have one, then you can try the microwave out, but dont do more than a couple jars so if it doesnt, your not wasting much. Birdseed is great when just boiled and allowed to soak up water and double in size. No crushing or grinding is required for success at birdseed IMO its just extra work.:)bluhoney

Before I had a pressure cooker, I sucessfully sterilized birdseed without a microwave, but the procedure was a pain in the ass. First, I soaked the birdseed by boiling some water and pouring it onto the dry seed. After a day of soaking, I added the appropriate amount of vermiculite and then boiled the jars for an hour(the time depends on the size of the jars; mine were 1/2 pints). I let them cool to room temperature and then froze all of them. The next day, I let them thaw out and then boiled them again for an hour. They were sterile at this point and ready to use.

Ground the millet like brf - in powder form your more likely to sterile successfully without a pressure cooker.
