"no melt suet" really hot in July and August. We're talking sometimes over 115 degrees! So I began making my own "no melt suet" and the birds absolutely LOVE it! Sure I have put out the store bought stuff and they
HOMEMADE SUET CAKES 1 pound of beef tallow or lard (preferable organic & pastured) 2 cups birdseed mix 2 cups black oil sunflower seeds 2 cups organic whole grain flour 1 cup dried fruit or peanuts (I used dried cherries from my bounty this past summer)
This little nut wreath is not only beautiful, the birds love it! Dianne taught us how to make these wreaths and they are one of the many items we'll be making in future Crafts at Mistletoe Cottage sessions.
