Sweet Potato Balls

1 large sweet potato
1/2 cup raisins
1 mashed banana
1 cup mixed veggies
1 cup diced apples
1 1/2 cup oatmeal, cereal or granola

Aside from softening the sweet potato in the microwave, this recipe
does not require you to do any cooking at all. Itís a relatively simple
recipe you can make that will provide with a big batch of treats that
freeze well. The fresh fruits and/or vegetables are especially nutritious
for your bird, and the cereal give the balls a pleasant crunch. Prepare
the sweet potato by piecing it several times with a knife or food
skewer. Then place the potato in the microwave and cook it on high
power for about 5-9 minutes, or until the potato is tender. Half way
through the cooking, turn the potato over. When it is finished cooking,
set it aside on a plate or other surface and allow it to cool
considerably. Once the potato is cool enough to handle, add the
remaining ingredients to the mixing bowl. Then use an electric mixer
on a high speed to thoroughly beat all the ingredients together. Blend
for several minutes, or until everything ahs been reduced to tiny
chunks, and the mixture is consistent. Check the consistency of the
mixture. It shouldnít be too thick; you should be able to mold it easily
with your hands and have it hold its shape. Adjust the consistency by
adding water as needed. Line a small baking sheet or tray with waxed
paper. Then begin to form some marble sized balls of the mixture by
tearing off chunks and rolling them between your hands. Arrange each
ball onto the prepared baking sheet. Then repeat with the remaining
mixture until you run out of mixture can no longer make any more
balls. The balls are ready to be served immediately. Promptly place
any leftover in the refrigerator until ready to use. Alternately, you can
individually wrap each ball in waxed paper, foil, or plastic wrap, if
space is an issue or you donít have a baking sheet to use. Defrost the
frozen balls before.
