Recipe for Birds
Don't worry about the large quantities - it'll freeze and keep if the birds are slow to find your treats.
1 cup peanut butter (the crunchy kind!)
2 cups one-minute Oats, cooked
2 cups corn meal
1 cup lard
1 cup white flour (all-purpose)
1/3 cup sugar
Optional: raisins, peanuts, sunflower seeds, dried fruit
Melt the peanut butter and lard over low heat. Stir in the rest of ingredients, one at a time. Stir in your blessings for the birds, too! Pour into an old metal cake pan that's about 1.5 inches deep. Let it cool. When it's hardened, cut it into squares or chunks. Leave the chunks in the pan and freeze them. Use the bird food as needed. with each batch making 6-8 chunks.
