Marie’s No-Melt Peanut Butter Suet

This is great food for the birds that can be put out all year.


  • 1 Cup Lard (shortening may work if you cannot get lard)
  • 1 Cup Peanut Butter

Melt in pot large enough to stir in the following:

  • 2 Cups of Oatmeal (regular – not instant)
  • 2 Cups Cornmeal
  • 1 Cup Flour
  • 1/3 Cup Sugar
  • Optional: Bird Seed

Pour into a pan (8×8 is good) and refrigerate to solidify.

Easier to remove if you line pan with wax paper then run hot water over bottom of pan to help it release.

Cut into fourths to place in a feeder – or a different shape to fit easily into your suet feeder.

Freeze extra till needed. I make a second batch before cleaning the pot!

About Harlequin

Harlequin is a pseudonym for content not attributed to a specific author. It echoes the name of the YCAS newsletter, The Harlequin. Watch for Harlequin Ducks along the rocky portions of the York County coast in winter. ¶ The avatar is by Louis Agassiz Fuertes, who sketched and painted the species during the Harriman Alaska Expedition. ¶ "When we got before the glacier, I saw my first pair of harlequins... the glass showed them plainly to be a ♂ + ♀ histrionicus." — L.A. Fuertes, June 7, 1899
