DIRECTIONS

  • This version uses peanut butter rather than melted suet or lard as the binding agent, which is more palatable for today's health conscious diets.
  • Although you can do it the old way if you wish.
  • Grind[or pound] the dried meat to a mealy powder.
  • Add the dried berries and seeds or nuts.
  • Heat the honey, peanut butter and cayenne until softened.
  • Blend.
  • When cooled, store in a plastic bag or sausage casing in a cool dry place.
  • It will keep for months.
