Woodpecker Pudding


  • 4 Kg suet
  • 1 Kg peanut butter
  • 250 grams of corn syrup
  • 1 Kg of rolled oats


How to make it!

  1. Melt the suet in a large container, pouring the melted fat into another as it cooks down.
  2. While the fat is still hot, add the peanut butter, corn syrup, and oats, stirring constantly until mixture is well blended.
  3. Put the pudding into old soup cans to cool and harden, and store in a cool place. To use, warm the can until the pudding is soft enough to handle.
  4. Drill a number of 3cm holes in a 10 cm diameter log (leave the bark intact to provide good toeholds for the birds.)
  5. Spread the pudding into the holes, and hang the log outdoors where it is accessible to the birds.
