Equipment

  • Muffin tin

Ingredients

  • 1 c peanut butter (natural is best)
  • 1 c lard
  • 1 c oatmeal
  • 1 c cornmeal

Instructions

  • Put peanut butter and lard in a glass bowl and microwave at medium heat until melted; mix.
  • Stir in remaining ingredients; pour into muffin tins.
  • Chill until firm and freeze until needed.

Notes

Note: My feeder is diamond shaped and fits two suets at a time, wide tops together. I therefore try to remember to make a hole in the centre of the filled muffins with a straw before I freeze them, in order to incorporate the metal bar of the suet holder.
