Mrs Downing's secret suet production line...

Wednesday, 19th February 2014

Mrs Downing from Yorkshire finally let us see her very own fat ball production line, which is inspected daily by her dog Harvey. This is what we found...
We asked for the recipe, and it sounds good enough for us to eat!
 
  • Here we go...bacon rind (unsalted of course) 
  • Lard mixed with Haith's Original Wild Bird Food
  • A few leftover Christmas nuts (again, unsalted)
  • Topped off with a few dried mealworms.

Mix everything together and squash into egg cups (great idea!) and other formats - not forgetting to sink the string at the same time. (Good advice as it's too late once they've cooled off.)

...and they're ready to feed by the next morning.

Well done Mrs Downing.

The birds will love them and Bill Oddie would be proud of you!
