Homemade Winter Suet Recipe:
1 Cup Grease/Meat Drippings (beef and bacon work the best)
2 Cups of Mixed Birdseed
2 Leftover Suet backings (or other small, square container)
Save your grease drippings till you have approx. 1 cup of solid grease. Place mason jar of drippings in microwave for 20 seconds and pour in a bowl. Add 2 cups of birdseed mix and stir well. Place mixture in leftover suet packages that you previously bought and used from the store or find a small , rectangular plastic container. Place suet in freezer or garage if it is winter out. Keep it someplace cold so the grease doesn't melt. Use when solid.
Birds love the high energy they get from the meat drippings. In the winter time it can sometimes be hard to find worms and other insects that provide them with nutrition. This is an excellent alternative for them and a great way for you to recycle and reuse your leftover suet backings from the store and your grease drippings!
