  1. I’m sorry, I am not good with computers, but I can’t find the recipe for chop. A list of ingred. and how to make it. 😦

    • There is a link at the very top of this article that will take you directly to Patricia Sunds site and there she has a list of ingredients and a video on her making the Chop. Hope this helps 🙂 Deborah

  2. I just watched your interesting video on making chop and I need to make one small correction in your ingredients. That which you called TURNIPS are actually PARSNIPS! I recommend you try these relatives of the carrot yourself as they’re VERY sweet and nutritious. Turnips are bulbous root vegetables that only share the light coloration of the parnsip. They have a very different flavor which, though also good, can’t compare with the sweetness of the parsnip.

  3. I love your recipe for biscotti. My Quaker parrot absolutely loves it. I make chop all the time, but only a few at a time because i’m Feeding one bird. All his food is homemade. I even make his nutiverroes. You can find so many recipes on line. Also make cranberry orange squares. I’m wondering if my Quaker can have the biscotti daily? Thanks very much.
