How to Make No Melt Suet

The birds could use a bit of help right now in finding some food. Suet is always a good choice. Here is an easy recipe for suet. Although it is a no-melt recipe, good for summer time use, it is still applicable now. It is easy, fun and it is a good activity to do with the kids.


  1. In a large pan, melt 1 cup suet or lard and 1 cup crunchy peanut butter.

  2. Take it off the stove.

  3. Stir in: 2 cups "quick cook" oats, 2 cups cornmeal, and 1 cup white flour.

  4. If it seems runny, add more flour.

  5. Fill small plastic margarine containers about 1/2 full, cover, then freeze.

  6. Remove from the suet from the containers; wrap, keep in freezer until needed.

  7. Place in a suet basket or on a platform feeder and watch your birds eat it up!


  • Buy the most inexpensive peanut butter available.

  • You can add raisins, craisins, nuts, and defrosted frozen vegetables also to the batter.

    And here is the rest of it.

Hi Susan
I can't wait to try this.
Why use the most inexpensive peanut butter? I only buy the natural.
Would organic ingredients work better for the birds?

I love this and will be making lots of birds happy.
Thanks for sharing,

Hi Robin..Yep, I'm sure that organic peanut butter would be better, but I by adding some of the other ingredients boosts the nutrient punch...for the family we only use organic PB, guess I am discriminating here. Susan
