For the Birds

Suet Cake from The Egret's Nest
(adapted from several sources from the Internet!)
  • 1 cup crunchy peanut butter
  • 1 cup lard
  • 1 cups quick oats
  • 1 cups cornmeal
  • 1 cup whole wheat flour
  • Additions - bird seed, dried fruit, chopped peanuts, etc.
  • pot large enough for ingredients.
  • containers that are about the same size as your suet holder.
  1. Assemble ingredients.
  2. Heat peanut butter and lard in pan on stove, stirring until melted.
  3. Remove from heat.
  4. Add oats, cornmeal, and whole wheat flour.
  5. Pour into containers.
  6. Freeze until hard.
Note: In the winter, suet does great but in the summer, this recipe will melt and make a mess. It also has a risk of going bad. Watch it carefully!
