Suet Recipe for Birds (makes 6 cakes)
Mix in a large bowl:
4 cups of cornmeal
3 cups of oatmeal
2 cups of flour
2/3 cups sugar
2 cups cracked sunflower seeds (optional)
Melt in large pan:
2 cups of lard
2 cups of peanut butter
Pour dry mixture into the melted lard and peanut butter then mix well. Spoon into molds that fit into your suet feeder. [I kept the commercial suet molds and reuse them].
Refrigerate to harden the mixture. You can freeze it too.
We always double the recipe and refrigerate it.
