Making Suet

   My 12 year old is still enjoying his Apologia Science that I reviewed HERE.  He is having such a great time learning all about birds.  We recently made suet to help feed our feathered friends during these cold days of March.

Cooking up the suet on the stove...the first time I've ever purchased lard!! (The recipe came from the Apologia Book linked above.)

After it cooled a bit, we put it in freezer bags.  We molded it so that it would fit into our suet "cage" and placed it in the freezer overnight.

The birds took a few days to get used to it.  They are used to the store bought suet.  Every morning we now see a cardinal getting his breakfast!
