Unsuet-suet? Interesting isn't it?
Most of us are familiar with and know what typical bird suet is. A mixture of many things (often left to the imagination) combined with the base which is animal fat of some kind.
It can be served up in a variety of ways and used all year to provide an excellent energy source for our active feathered friends.
Nuthatches, Woodpeckers, Chickadees and many more birds will love this mystery delicacy. The biggest problem you will have is keeping it out there in your yard and available as it will be eaten very fast.
Well "unsuet-suet" is very similar to what we have always known as suet but it has a very different base. Many different ingredients can be added to it, it can be molded into shapes and placed in various types of feeders like regular suet can.
I did not create this wonderful new food myself, it was created by another passionate wild bird appreciator by the name of Melissa J. Will. I just want to share this fun new idea with you!
The whole idea of this interesting and creative idea came from a very creative and interesting website:
The primary base is: Peanut Butter
Peanut butter offers a good dose of fat which provides our fast paced little friends with abundant energy for their active lives and fuel to keep them warm.
It also has the added advantage of serving up an abundant supply of protein.
But like all oils whether it's found in animal fat or in peanut butter it must be served with care to prevent it from turning rancid as this could make our avian friends sick.
Wild birds will love mealworms added to your homemade suet.
So please enjoy and here is the mystery recipe.
List of Ingredients:
Voila! The best suet that isn't, an excellent bird food recipe.
