Keeping Suet from Melting

I am an avid bird feeder! How does one prevent suet from melting through in the summer warmth? On the market, I have only seen, small blocks of suet that claim to not melt. My experience leads me to say that all suet melts. Any suggestions?

The 'no-melt' suet still melts, just not as fast as the regular kind. I live in the south, and have never been able to stop it from melting. You could try using a plastic tub to hold it, where at least all the contents stay together. I just stopped using them when the weather is warm, and store them in the freezer until it is cool outside.
Best of luck to you!

Adding corn meal to your suet cake will do the trick. Mine doesn't melt and believe me its been hot here in Oklahoma. I mix up lard, corn meal (no salt kind), oatmeal, peanut butter, until it is thick like (and if you want add raisins or seeds, but you don't need anything else).


Put in suet containers (I saved all my store bought ones), set in the refrigerator until set and then put each container in a sandwich bag and put into the freeze until ready to 'serve'.

Very good info. I will have to try this. I have lots of birds in my back yard and I hope that this will draw even more in during winter months here in SC.
