I feel behind the times when it comes to suet recipes. There are many suggested ways to make it, and this may be a tired subject for a lot of you. But here goes anyway.
The birds shied away from my deck over the past few weeks, as I have been having my roof replaced. Since I want to entice them back I have decided I need to jump in a make a suet recipe for those feathered friends that have been waiting patiently to have the deck to themselves again. This is something I have never tried, so after doing a little research I have scoured my cupboard for ingredients. I want to start out easy, so I haven’t purchased anything like rendered fat. Here is what I came up with, pictures were added just for fun. First, the ingredients I used:
Next, some fun pictures of the process:
A snowman to get into the spirit:
Ready to refrigerate for an hour:
Finally, ready to use some jute to hang them in the trees.
Don’t you think putting together some homemade suet, a bag of bird seed and a copy of the Birds and Blooms magazine would make a perfect gift for your birding friends?
