A Bird’s Delight

1 1/4 lb. suet
1/2 C. sunflower seeds
1/2 C. crushed peanuts
1/2 C. cracked corn kernels

Melt suet in the oven or saucepan (yields about 2 cups liquid fat). Stir in peanuts, sunflower seeds and corn. Spoon into a 4-cup heart-shaped mold (or two 2-cup molds); insert a drinking straw at the top (for rope). Cool in the refrigerator until solid.

Unmold; (Invert and run under hot water for a second or two), remove straw.

Thread with string and tie to a shaded tree branch.
