  • In a food processor blend first 5 ingredients till all combined.
  • If needed add more cornmeal to make it workable.
  • Place it in a plastic bag and refrigerate till ready to use.
  • I like to put a string on pine cones then smear the mixture on it roll into seeds and hang for those that want it.
  • Or mix it (Seeds And mixture) all together and place into a suet cage or in an onion bag to be hung in a tree.
  • Just keep on making for the birds because they depend on it once you start.
