Suet Recipes

Suet Recipe 1

2 cups lard or Crisco
2 cups crunchy peanut butter
melt these together in microwave and add
2 cups flour
2 cups sugar
2 cups cornmeal
4 cups rolled oats
2 cups chopped apples
Add raisins and nuts if desired

Mix, spread in pans, cool & cut. Bag & freeze.

Suet Recipe 2

4 cups cornmeal
1 cup shortening
1 cup all purpose flour
1 cup peanut butter (crunchy)

Combine all ingredients and mix well. Spoon into empty yogurt containers and allow to dry. place in onion bag and hang for birds. Or spoon into empty pie pan allow to dry, and place in suet feeder

Peanut Butter Suet (Recipe 3)

2 cups Lard
2 cups Crunchy Peanut Butter
2 cups Cornmeal
4 cups Oatmeal-Old Fashion
2 cups Sugar
2 cups flour
2 apples
1/2 box raisins

Melt lard and peanut butter in microwave. Add melted mixture to other ingredients and stir. I add 2 apples (diced), 1/2 box raisins, and a handful of walnuts. Mixture should be thick. Pour into 2 greased 9 X 13 cake pans, cool in fridge. Cut into squares that fit your suet feeders. I then put squares into plastic baggies and freeze them individually. You can also add bird seed and other fruits if desired.

Suet Recipe 4

1 cup lard
1 cup crunchy peanut butter
1 cup plain flour
2 cups cornmeal
2 cups one minute oatmeal
1/3 cup sugar

Melt the lard and peanut butter in the microwave 90 sec to 2 min to melt.

Add all other ingredients and stir until well mixed. You may add other nutrients such as dried fruit pieces, more peanuts, various seeds such as blackoil sunflower etc.

This goes fast in my neighborhood. You can use old store bought suet containers as your molds and then they fit perfectly into store bougt suet cages. I use a Tupperware container that is square and then cut it into four equal pieces that fit the suet cages perfectly.

A great recipe from J. Marty!
