Fenugreek chrunchies recipe? U/D Found a reasonable co!

Post by gentl on Mon Aug 12, 2013 8:23 pm

Anyone have a recipe for these?  To get 1 small 200 GM pkg delivered here it is aprox $14 US!!

Rory is addicted.   Does anyone give fresh fenugreek to their buns?

Unfortunately I dont know the recipie, but I do have a tutorial on youtube for home made bunny treats, which you could always adapt and add fenugreek. Ive switched all my videos to private now though, so if you want it, let me know and ill send you the link.

Hi hunni,

I don't mind grabbing you a job lot - to keep you going for a while.....

Ill see if I can get some idea of postage costs and weights to see what would be the mst economical way of doing it.

I think it is fine to feed fresh plant or to dry it out. But avoid the seeds raw as they are poisonous.

Looking at the ingredients I think crunchies are probably just 2% fenugreek powder 98% ground corn/polenta mix to a paste with some water then baked until hard.

There is a recipe for a much richer recipe here - http://www.therabbithouse.com/blog/2011/11/16/homemade-rabbit-treats/

If you are going to grow your own you can make fenugreek powder with the seed but they require pan roasting until they are really very dark in colour before grinding.

I am currently growing some fresh fenugreek for Dougal. I have not given him any yet, but it is growing well so will be doing soon hopefully. He loves the crunchies too.

Do they not sell them over there anywhere so you do not have to pay shipping etc?

I tried to get a guy at my work to eat one but he wasn't having any of it Laughing

My excuse for refusing? There's no veggie label! My motto is, no label, no eat! Phew! Laughing

I found that VioVet sells them for 1.75 BPS!  They will ship 1.5 K for 10 BPS.  The crunchies are 200 gm per bag so I could get 7 bags to keep it under the 1.5 kg.
7 x 1.75= 12.25 + 10(shipping)= 22.25 BPS = $34.55  My math may be wrong. Hmmm 
That makes each bag cost about $4  Not super cheap but better than the $12-14 per bag!

Myrtle, Patch and Daisy get fresh fenugreek leaves but only about 3 a day as a treat. I think they prefer the crunchies though as they smell stronger and are crunchy
