Jarvis' mom sent over a recipe for Homemade suet last week. It is super easy and the birds love it. It makes me happy when they chose the suet I made over the store bought kind. It is simply one part Crisco or lard (I used lard), one part peanut butter (I used no salt, natural, crunchy) put in microwave till it melts. Mix in corn meal till it gets thick. I also mixed in raw peanuts and raisins. I had an old suet package I used as a mold for my mixture. After filling the mold I put it in the freezer till it set up.
As I am writing this I can hear the birds squawking by the feeder. They keep fighting over Jarvis' mom's special recipe!
