Winter Feeding - Suet Recipe to Attract Birds

Home made suet for the birds
I meant to post this before but kept putting it off.  I used to buy suet blocks for the birds then experimented with making suet the long way by melting down beef fat and adding ingredients. I still make suet long way when I have the time, but came up with some quick recipes, which work as well.

Here is a recipe that I use in whipping up a quick batch of suet that has proven to be quite popular for my backyard birds. The best part, is no worries about measuring, just guesstimate :) 

  • Peanut butter (crunchy)
  • Chopped up nuts
  • Corn Meal
  • Extras: chopped up raisins, dried fruits, sunflower seeds and sunflower hearts

    I like this easy suet recipe. I will have to try it out on my birdies.
