If you think cooking is for the birds, well, today it was.
Now that November has arrived, it is time to prepare and freeze some home-made suet.
Here's the recipe again.
1 cup peanut butter
1 cup lard
2 cups corn meal
1 cup flour
1/3 cup sugar
2 cups rolled oats
After the peanut butter and lard has cooked down on low, add the corn meal, flour, sugar and oats.
I let this cool slightly before adding the seed and nuts.
Then add any sugarless cereal you may have such as cheerios, shreddies, special K...
perhaps add some cranberries or chopped apple
Line muffin tins with saran wrap
pop them in the freezer
The birds will love these and pooh! pooh! the commercial cakes until they are all gone.
2 fit nicely in a suet cage.
I had no kitchen helpers today. Annie was enjoying the pellet stove in the garage and Audrey dined at her favorite spot.
I'm expecting lots of action at the feeders when the cold winds blow.These suet cakes are a win-win for our feathered and furry friends.
