Bird Suet that will not melt


  • Peanut butter
  • Rendered suet/lard
  • Birdseed
  • Dried fruit
  • Cornmeal/oatmeal
  • Water (warm)

How to make it!

  1. Melt 2 cups rendered suet or lard with 2 cups peanut butter in the microwave.
  2. Allow the peanut butter and suet/lard to cool before mixing with 4 cups cornmeal or oatmeal.
  3. Add warm water. Be careful not to add too much, or the dough will turn gooey and messy.
  4. Add 2 cups birdseed (mixes are good) and/or dried fruits (raisins, currants, cherries).
  5. Use square containers a little smaller than your suet holder. Pour in mixture and cover with plastic food wrap.
  6. Freeze for 24 hours. This makes 9 cakes.
