Birder's Delight - special treat for feathered friends!
This recipe from:
1 lb. of suet or 2 1/3 C. crisco
1 C. yellow cornmeal
1 C. oatmeal
1 C. chunky peanut butter
1 C mixed wildbird seed
1 C. shelled sunflower seeds
Melt suet & stir in rest of ingredients. Pour or pack mixture in molds or shape in balls & hang from trees in mesh bags such as onions come in.
Note: I line a plastic mold that a commercial suet cake came in. I use plenty of plastic wrap to line it. I pack the mixture in the mold, then lift it out with the plastic wrap & finish wrapping it up. Store your suet cakes in the freezer. The birds love this!
