|Suet balls for the birds.|
1 cup crunchy peanut butter
2 cups quick cook oatmeal
2 cups corn meal
1 cup lard (no substitutes allowed)
1 cup white flour
1/3 cup of sugar
Melt the lard and peanut butter and then stir in the other ingredients. When it is all mixed you can put it into containers that you purchase bird suet in, or you can roll it into balls for putting into mesh bags. Extras can be frozen until needed.
|Making mesh hanging bags.|
- I cut the corn meal amount to 1 cup and substituted 1 cup of birdseed.
- I cut the oatmeal amount to 1 cup and substituted 1 cup of sunflower seeds.

Now all I need is some better weather to see if any birds are left in the vicinity to enjoy their special treats.
