Make your own suet!

I came across this suet recipe in Birds & Blooms magazine. 


"Birds seem to like this suet much better than the store-bought variety. Some won't even come to the feeder if this suet isn't there. I have five different woodpeckers that love the suet, and one that stays around all year."



  • 1 cup lard
  • 1 cup crunchy peanut butter
  • 1/3 cup sugar
  • 1 cup whole wheat flour, cream of wheat or oatmeal
  • 2 cups cornmeal
  • Optional: raisins, sunflower seeds (w/o shells), dried fruit or eggshells


While I have had much success with the suet we carry in our store, I have enjoyed making my own suet for the birds. So, if you have the time and want to be crafty, try out this recipe from Birds & Blooms. I think you will enjoy it!
