Homemade Wild Bird Food
When the weather gets cold, we always make sure to take extra care of our wild feathered friends. We give them plenty of birdseed and fresh water each day. But, for our animal loving child (Makenna) that wasn’t enough. She wanted to make them something. Her first choice was pinecones lathered in peanut butter and rolled in birdseed but we’ve done those in the past….so I headed to the internet to find other recipes.
This is the first one we’ve tried, and we had lots of fun, so we’ll be sure to try some more recipes before the winter is over.
The Recipe. Homemade Bird Food.
In large bowl combine..
1 cup Cornmeal, 1 cup Peanut Butter, 1 cup Sugar, 1/2 cup Flour
Add 1/2 cup Water.
Microwave on high 4-5 minutes until very thick.
Add 1 cup Birdseed. Stir. Let Cool.
Press into mold. Milk Carton, Cool Whip container, Sour Cream container, etc. (We tried in a pie plate and it got to thin and didn’t hold together as well as we would have liked.)
Put in refrigerator to cool and harden.
Unmold and put outside for the birdies to enjoy!
