Time to fill the suet feeder and log. I have to prepare the mix about every three or four days. My efforts are rewarded by a rich assortment of photo ops. Only problem is making the birds dependent on the resource. I need to have someone come and fill the feeders if I'm going to be away for more than a day.
1 cup crunchy peanut butter
1 cup lard (not vegetable shortening)
2 cups quick-cook oats
2 cups cornmeal
1 cup plain flour
1/3 cup sugar
Melt lard and peanut butter in microwave. Stir in remaining ingredients. Pour into square or rectangular container. Refrigerate to harden and then use as required to fill feeders. After it's hardened it doesn't have to be refrigerated.
