beef suet ( free from the meat market of the grocery store)
melted down. ( my boys kept asking what smells good. ughhhh!) then. I kept the pure liquid fat and threw out the rest. I put the liquid fat in a bowl and mixed in raisins that had been plumped in water and oats.
Then I put the whole thing into square pyrex dishes and let set-up. It comes out of the pan easily.
I put it in a suet-holder I found on clearance for 2.00 ( I also have a second one stored away for this winter that I got free off freecycle.)
and another look...
so far our favourite visitor has been the stellar jay.
