    I don't know. Maybe just get some strawberries and smash them into jam?

    I don't know for sure, but I would think you could make some kind of preserves with mashed fruit like peaches or strawberries and perhaps cook it into pure gelatin (the unflavored natural kind). I used to read about making such a concoction for fish. I will see if I can find the link.

    Here it is. Just make sure the ingredient label doesn't include salt. I doubt it though since iodine is equally harmful to fish.







    Keep your goldfish healthy - cook him a meal!


    Cook him some gel food
    Gel food is easy to make, and because it can be stored in the freezer, you don't have to cook it every day.
    You just need a packet of unflavoured gelatin, a 2.5 oz jar of baby food - strained pea, carrot, green bean or spinach varieties are good - and a cup of water. You also need an empty ice cube tray.
    Here's how to make it:

    1. Pour 1/4 cup of water into a small saucepan.
    2. Add the gelatin and stir over a low heat until the gelatin has completely dissolved.
    3. Add the baby food and 3/4 cup of water, and continue to stir until it is thoroughly mixed.
    4. When it has a smooth consistency, pour the mixture into an ice cube tray and leave it to cool.
    5. Refrigerate the mixture. It will solidify in a few hours.
    When you're ready to feed your goldfish, take out a cube, cut it into small strips, and add a few of them to your fish tank. Put the rest back into the freezer.

    I'm not sure either, but I believe I read long ago that gelatin was simply made from the protein in animal bone marrow. My biggest concern is if there is sodium content. I had just read this recipe in several places for fish. Personally, there are far too many tempting treats on Vikki's website for me to bother.
