Don’t forget our feathered friends

Had a request for this recipe…It is a good one for those of you that like feeding birds!
Suet is an excellent source of energy and be purchased or made very inexpensively. This recipe was handed down to me from a North Platte native. It gives birds nutrition during the winter months and won’t freeze and become inedible when it gets cold; use 1 cup peanut butter, 1 cup lard, 2 cups oats, 2 cups cornmeal, 1 cup flour, 1/3 cup sugar. Melt all together then you can add raisins, sunflower seeds, chopped dried fruit or whatever you feel like including. Happy bird watching!
