Gourmet Bird Food Balls

2 pounds ground suet (let the butcher grind it)
2 cups peanut butter
1/3 cup molasses
1/4 cup bacon grease
1 pound regular oatmeal
1 cup cornmeal
Bird feed with sunflower seeds

Place suet in a pan and melt over medium heat. Strain into a large bowl. Add peanut butter, molasses, bacon grease, oatmeal and cornmeal. Add enough seeds until mixture can be rolled into balls. Roll into two-inch balls and coat with bird feed while warm. Chill. Place outside for the birds.

If using as a gift, wrap individual balls in plastic wrap and tie with a ribbon. Attach a label indicating it is for the birds.

Yields 24 two-inch balls.
