Super Suet Recipe for Backyard Birds

My boyfriend's coworker gave us a sample of this suet with the recipe. She gives them as Christmas gifts. I have it in the freezer right now until winter, but I can't wait to try it out! My birds are going to love it!

Super Suet
Created by Judy Benner
Made by Kathy Feucht

1 cup Crunchy Peanut Butter
1 cup Lard (No Substitutes!)
2 cup Quick Oats
1 cup flour
2 cup cornmeal
1/3 cup sugar

Melt peanut butter and lard in the microwave or double boiler on low. Stir in remaining ingredients and put into square freezer containers. Keep in the fridge or freezer until needed.
Makes 6-8 suet cakes, fits most suet holders (or you can make your own with recycled onion bags)

Suet cakes are a high-energy food and will attract many different types of birds.
