Ingredients:   

  • 500 grams of lard
  • 100 grams of crunchy peanut butter
  • ¾ cup to 1 cup of raisins
  • ¾ cup to 1 cup sunflower seeds or mixed birdseed
  • 6 cups cornmeal
  • 5 cups of all purpose flour

How to make it!

  1. In a saucepan over medium heat, melt the lard.
  2. Once melted, add in the peanut butter and stir until melted.
  3. Take off the stove and stir in the rest of the ingredients. Put in a 9 X 13 pan, let it harden and then cut into squares to fit into a wire suet feeder.
  4. Can be individually wrapped and kept in the freezer until ready to use.
