Pumpkin Pie is a seasonal blend that is not specifically for geckos. It is a well received omnivore formula that was designed for bearded dragons, but makes a great staple food for more any omnivore and as a special treat for herbivores that can use a small protein boost. A great choice for Red Foot Tortoises, Gecko, Goldfish, Koi, Mbuna, Oscars, Uaru, Leporinus

DIRECTIONS: Ratio is one part powder to three parts water, i.e. 1/4 cup powder and 3/4 cup water.
Microwave: Measure water into heat safe container (I use plastic containers). Heat in the microwave until water starts to boil. Add powder and mix well. Let sit on counter until gelled, approximately 2 hours.
Stove top: Measure water into a pot and boil on stove. Remove from heat. Add powder and mix well. Immediately pour into a storage container or mold, and let sit at room temp until firm.
The finished gel can be cut into cubes, shredded, or used as a whole slab. Whatever is not used immediately should be treated as fresh food. It can be stored sealed in refrigerator for up to two weeks, and in freezer for up to six months. To adjust firmness of gel, use more or less water as desired.
JERKY: Prepare gel as above, pour into deep container, and then cut gel into ¼ inch thick slices of desired size. Completely dry in Oven or Dehydrator at 150 °F (65 °C). (8-12 hours typical).
