great, no-mess way to feed suet balls or
High Energy Truffles to the wild birds in your New Zealand garden.

They are designed to take
High Energy Truffles or homemade suet balls.

Suet is the hard white fat found around kidneys and loin cuts of meat. You
can get it as off cuts from your local butcher or if you can't face handling the
real stuff you can get lard or dripping in block form from your local
Cut the fat (suet) in chunks and place in saucepan on a low heat until it
softens. It is important to do this process slowly so that you don't overheat it
and change the nature of the fat in any way. The fat doesn't have to become
completely liquid, at the point at which it is the consistency of a paste you
can take the pan off the stove & stir in a bird seed and sunflower mix. Let the
mix cool until it is of a consistency suitable to spoon into whatever mould you
I find an ideal way is to pour about 25 - 30mm of the mix into a plastic
ice cream container. When the mix cools you can remove it from the container by
turning it up side down and pushing down on the bottom.
Store in the freezer until ready to use.
Adding different ingredients
to the mixture before it cools can make it more attractive to
birds and supply them with extra energy.
