Serves 12

  • 2lbs hard vegetable fat or 2 lbs lard or 2 lbs suet

  • 3cups bird seed (I buy the winter mix)

  • 2cups peanut butter

  • 1cup cornmeal (millet, quinoa or semolina can be substituted)

  • 1cup oats

  • 1⁄2 cup all-purpose flour

  • 1cup currants (or other dried fruits)

  • 1cup cracked corn (optional)


  • 01

    In a large pan start melting the fat.

  • 02

    When almost melted, take off the heat, add the rest of the listed ingredients and mix well.

  • 03

    Let the mix cool enough for the seeds to be evenly distributed and not sink to the bottom.

  • 04

    Fill your molds, cool until set and un-mold.

  • 05

    IMPORTANT: Do not use old and used fat from your deep fryer because that is not good for the birds.
