Homemade Peanut Butter Suet

I've been wanting to make some homemade suet for the birds, but wasn't keen on some of the recipes I've seen. I found one that looks perfect, thanks to Corey at 10,000 Birds:

Homemade Peanut Butter Suet

1. Melt 1 cup shortening (crisco or bacon fat). Add 16-20 ounces of crunchy peanut butter. Heat and stir until melted.
2. Add 1 cup of raisins, 1 cup of black oil sunflower seeds, 6 cups of cornmeal and 4 cups of flour.
3. Spoon into a 13X9 pan. Chill until it is hard. Cut into chunks for suet feeders (or stuff into cracks and crevices in logs).

Check out Corey's post, as it includes pictures and the story behind this recipe :)
