A Bird's Delight


  • 1 1/4 pounds suet
  • 1/2 cup sunflower seeds
  • 1/2 cup crushed peanuts
  • 1/2 cup cracked corn kernels


  1. Melt suet in the oven or saucepan (yields about 2 cups liquid fat).
  2. Stir in peanuts, sunflower seeds and corn. Spoon into a 4-cup heart-shaped mold (or two 2-cup molds); insert a drinking straw at the top (for rope).
  3. Cool in the refrigerator until solid.
  4. Unmold; remove straw. Thread with string and tie to a shaded tree branch.
