• Suet Cups & Cones

    Throughout the winter months the local wildlife has a tendency to find it increasingly more difficult to find food sources. If you want to help them out (and enjoy watching the birds flock to your home!) you can make tasty suet cups and cones.


    You'll Need:
    Large pine cones (if you warm these in the oven, they will open up well)
    Suet mixture (Beef suet Mixed with Bird seed & Raisins)
    Yarn, Jute, Wire
    Hollowed-out orange halves

    **Optional**
    Cracked Corn
    Oats

    If you want a smoother suet, melt
    the suet in a saucepan over medium heat, stirring to remove clumps. Remove from heat and let it cool about 10 minutes then add your favorite bird seed, raisins, stirring to blend, the mixture will be thick.

    For suet cups, hollow out orange halves. Carefully nail the half to a tree stump. Fill the empty halves with the suet mixture.

    For suet cones, cover the pine cones with your choice of suet mixture or plain suet. Work the suet mixture into the scales of the pine cones. Hang the cones with yarn, Jute or wire.
