  • 4 cups suet
  • 1/4 cup millet
  • 1 cup cracker or bread crumbs
  • 1/2 cup sunflower seeds
  • 1/4 cup dried fruit: raisins, currants or dates
  • 1/4 cup peanuts or peanut butter


  1. Melt the suet or solid fat in a large, heavy saucepan until it is liquid. Remove from heat and allow it to cool until slightly thickened.
  2. Combine the remaining ingredients in a bowl, then pour the cooled suet over the mixture. Stir thoroughly.
  3. While the mixture is warm and pliable, you can spread it onto tree trunks or tree limbs for easy feeding. You can pack it into the spaces in pine cones and hang the pine cones on a tree. Or you can spread it in a 1-inch deep baking pan and refrigerate overnight.
  4. When the suet is hardened, cut it into squares to fit your feeder.
