I am going to make grease patties:
4# granulated sugar
3 oz corn oil
1 1/2 pounds of Crisco
1 pound honey
2 oz plus 1 tsp wintergreen oil
1/2 pound of mineral salt (pink)
When I went to the feed store I knew what I wanted but the lady there got me confused. I planned to get the sheep minerals (so I could give the extras to my goats) - instead I ended up with "mixing salt". Is there a real difference for this purpose ? The mixing salt will have a much stronger concentration of salt - I dont want to put the wrong thing in my hive !
