NO MELT SUET CAKES FOR BIRDS
We're big bird watchers at my house. I have year round birdseed feeders in both the front and back of my house and am constantly filling them up.
And then in the winter I add suet cakes to the feeding areas to give the birds a little extra boost of energy.
Homemade suet is easy to make, can save you money if you make them in bulk and allows you to create the variety of suet you want (peanut, berry, etc).
– Birdseed – Dried Fruit – Peanuts – Oats
– Melted Lard – Mixing Bowl – Spoon – Molds
Put the birdseed, dried fruit, peanuts and oats in a mixing bowl. Stir.
Pour lard over the birdseed mixture
Spoon the wet birdseed mixture into your mold
